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.
"I'll allow it" Boehner is an arrogant twit.
Wouldn't it be nice if there was a law forcing lobbyists and 'special interests' to reveal who they are paying and how much?
So as a life long democrat this means I'll be getting my welfare check right? I have 19 kids and it's not my responsibility to support them. Oh and make sure my free cellphone bill is paid to before I scream racism.
King Boehner has spoken!
All hail the King!
IIts a shame for John Boehner to blame anybody but the republicans and the tea party for the government shutdown. The president and democrats have said they will negotiate the budget and anything else but only after the government is open and congress raised the debt ceiling. All he is doing is trying to save face and hiss ass. Whats with not winning i thought this wasn't same DAMM GAME republicans. Those are John Boehners own words to the president the only people who lost are all the people who could not do their jobs all because some republican cry babies.
Great! So what happens after Feb. 7?
Face it, Americans, your government is going broke and your economy is on the brink of total collapse. Look at all those morons buying up stock on the stock markets. They're feeling pretty upbeat right now, but another crisis looms in February 2014. Why throw away good money after bad when you know you're gonna lose it all.
Fought the good fight? Really? That's like Pee Wee Herman getting in the ring with Mr. T, and punching himself in the face.
Your four hour "Boehner" has just gone soft.
I am for throwing everyone out and starting fresh. This has been ridiculous.
hahaha wow....anyone who thinks that the DemonRats or the RepubliCons are 'on the side of the American People' is a fool - they are owned and operated by JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs! Enjoy more and more debt until it all collapses, fools.
Oh yeah! I can't wait until all of the fools that voted for Obama get raped on health care premiums. It will put a smile on my face.
Attention Tea Party
Your history. In the next election we are sending all of you to the bone yard.
You do all realize that this accomplishes nothing. The debt will continue to rise, there will be no increase in
the GDP or money going into the government, our dollar will still be backed by 'faith' and we will all hear
the same story again in January. What exactly is the point of this???? How does this fix anything???
King Boehner has spoken.
All hail the King!
How is putting thousands of government workers (who still will be paid in any event for work they didn't do), degradation of the national debt rating, and exposure of the country to ridicule worldwide, not to mention diverting congressional attention from other issues, a "good fight"? Does not compute.
Republicans do not understand that American people can see for themselves what is going on. They cannot tolerate providing healthcare for every American . They don't care about people, they only care about their rich buddies. They don't care about small business but only billionaires. All of these selfish people need to be sent home in the next election.
Sifto....they get to sign up for Obamacare, they just don't get subsidized by the government....and that was a Republican ide.
We do not negotiate with terrorists. Threatening global financial meltdown to get your way is not ok. Dems had no choice but to tell them to shove it. Otherwise they would just be rewarding and setting a precedent for this absurd, detrimental strategy. I'm glad reality finally managed to seep through the thick skulls in the House.
This is why, in some countries, the ability to dismiss the government and start all over comes in very handily.
Now ... if only the voters would i) remember this crap next election, and ii) VOTE, maybe we could flush out the raw sewage and begin a path toward effective government!
He'll allow it? Well thank you. Guess what. WE will allow you to keep your job....or not.
When will the fools in this country realize that ObamaCare is an option for the 45 million American, who have no access to adequate or no insurance coverage. Dont like it, dont enroll in it. Let the ones who like it, enroll in it. These Republican bigots think they know what is best for others.
Wait till Feb. We will really go over cliff unless Obamacare is deleted.
Congress: You will never find a more wretched hive of sum and villanry"
Where does he say "I'll Allow it"
I can't find that quote in this story...
"We fought the good fight; we just didn't win," Boehner told a radio station
the main point of the GOP was "fought". time to stop the fighting, saying no, filibustering, obstructing almost everything ranting hate, lies and insults and start coming up with some solutions and constructive ideas.
Finally! These clowns have definitely put not only the country but the whole world through enough. I can't believe the level of stupidity and bad tactics shown by the Republicans and especially, the Tea Party. John Boehner will at least be able to leave the House with a little bit of dignity now. I've been a Republican my entire life but that will change now after I find another party I can support. One thing is for sure with all the mess and poor choices Republicans have made, I will be doing everything in my power to ensure that none are re-elected nor will I ever again support any Republican initiatives... I am done.
