Washinton (CNN) - Senate leaders on Wednesday announced a deal to end the partial government shutdown and avoid a possible U.S. default, and House Speaker John Boehner urged fellow Republicans to support it while a key GOP conservative said he wouldn't try to block it in the Senate.
"We fought the good fight; we just didn't win," Boehner told a radio station in his home state of Ohio in reference to GOP efforts to dismantle or defund President Barack Obama's signature health care reforms and extract deficit reduction concessions around the need to fund the government and raise the federal borrowing limit.
Nothing has been accomplished – there is no relief – our debts are still huge – and will continue to grow under this administration – especially with the disastrous Obamacare. Things will continue to get much worse with Obama, Reid, and Pelosi at the helm. But, those of us who know this will continue to fight the good fight.
Doesn't this now have to go through the really crazy side of Congress now? If Boehner brings it to a vote, it passes easily... but does he have the guts to defy the TP lunatics?
You know, whatever party you belong to, how's this for an idea. Since there are no prerequisites for being elected to congress, and people with "colorful" backgrounds are finding their way in....why not require that all freshmen congressmen complete a few classes on basic economics, government, ect. You could have them moderated in a non-partisan manner.
Europe is on Friday??? They are there to do a job. Many should not seek re-election because they have embarrased the US.
they still have to vote – they will wait till the markets close – Just hope CNN's "The Roman Numeral" doesn't have a heart attack.
victor cruz is one scary, crazy dude.
Two weeks of tantrums and the Repubs got absolutely nothing. Thanks for the show, boys.
The republicans are at fault. No ifs, ands or buts about this.
Heres a Challenge, I'm going to be President real quick, and throw out the bum in office and FIRE all you congressman and senators, try to challenge that !
They don't get any atta boys. They created this whole mess. Vote 'em ALL out! Especially the likes of Canadian cruz.
Remember and return the favor,
2014 Republicans = Just vote No
Time to play kick the can until the next manufactured "crisis".
......and people still think this group of elected window lickers can manage healthcare. There is no hope for us as a nation.
Teabags will be rioting in the streets
But will it pass in the House and Senate? Well done to Senators Reid and McConnel but we've seen this before and it ends with the extreme right doing what they want and not what the American people want. The majority of Americans voted for healthcare reform. Give it to us!
Time to arrest the insurrectionists!
Because Sen. John McCain said I'll punch you right in your piehole if you keep it up. And NEVER, NEVER again show up at a WWII memorial. If you had been in office then, there would be NO government purchased WWII memorial.
How much more can you put us in debt what a bunch of crap.
No bills should ever be passed unless we have the money to do so.
Because Sen. John McCain said I'll shove tea in your piehole if you keep it up. And NEVER, NEVER again show up at a WWII memorial. If you had been in office then, there would be NO government purchased WWII memorial.
Yeah...Cruz's thought of political death was just a bit to stark. My hope is you end up in the history books like Bush...another Texan moron.
So the whole agreement is to delay... Nice! We have been delayed the last 4 years.. Come on! Fix it! or quit and let someone else figure it out
YAY, we can go back to spending a trillion billion dollars a day on pretty much nothing! God bless America and George Soros!
Where do I send my campaign contributions against the TEA TALIBAN TERRORISTS. Never again America – Never again.
I dare him to block the vote... while he's at it... re-read green eggs and ham...
If Congress isn't participating in the ACA ( Obamacare), no deal on anything !!! It's not right
