NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - With the clock ticking down, House Speaker John Boehner will rewrite his debt ceiling legislation to ensure that it meets his oft-stated pledge to cut spending more than Congress increases the federal borrowing limit.
That was the word from Boehner's office after the Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday evening estimated that the Budget Control Act of 2011 would reduce deficits by only $851 billion over 10 years.
Like we need even more evidence the GOBPbaggers are horrible at basic fiscal management and budgetary math. History has taught us that since Reagan was in office.
Trickle-down economics blasted by its author, David Stockman, as a failure ... cutting taxes during wartime, unprecedented in our nation's history ... no change in policy course to continue cutting taxes for the wealthy, even though it doesn't create jobs here in the US and took the Clinton surplus and turned it into a deficit ...
These Republicans don't know DIDDLY about economics or how to grow our economy.
That's been PROVEN time and time and time again!
Go home, Boehner – you and your party are WORTHLESS!
How embarrassing, Boehner and his Tea Bagger crew are just plain inept
Voters will send Boehner back to OHIO!
This guy isn't very good at his job, is he?
What are they cutting? They are keeping that a secret from the American people.
The GOP will be the downfall of the USA! WE MUST VOTE OUT THE CONSERVATIVE MENANCE!
WOW! and to think this guy walk away from a 4.7 trillion deal. Speaker Boehner is twisting in the winds.
Capitulating to your fringe base ain't gonna work, Boehner. Do your job. Oh, where are the jobs, jobs, jobs, and yet again, jobs?
What a JOKE. Does the GOP know how to add or subtract? This whole thing is a joke on America. Time to vote these folks out.
Honestly what does Bohner and the House GOP Reps think they're going to accomplish by passing a a piece of legislation that's DOA in senate? Hell the rating agency Moodys have gone on the record stating they'll still lower the U.S.'s AAA bond rating if the Bohner plan passes precisely because it doesn't take us through the next year. Its time he faces the fact that there's no spinning this mess into a political victory for GOP or anyone else for that matter and sign on to a comprmised bill.
hey great idea, how about starting by eliminating all the czars appointed by BHO, that would save a bundle in salaries, then maybe cutting all the fraud in Welfare and disabilities plus greedy doctors who use medicare/medicaid fraud to rake in millions, stop the stupid earmarks and pork projects, I think maybe we could be waaay ahead if we just used a little common sense... oh I forgot, there's no common sense in Washinton.
Yea right. Compare those figure to the $4 thrillion proposed by the president and anyone can see where the trouble lies. Gop are a funny bunch.
Johhy, you have to proof read your work before you submit if for grade!
