De voorzitter van het Huis van Afgevaardigden, John Boehner, reageerde afgelopen week op de persconferentie van president Obama en zei dat Republikeinen in het Huis “will continue to stand with the American people”, terwijl de president de economische realiteit in de VS negeert, aldus Boehner.
“The President’s remarks today ignore legislative and economic reality, and demonstrate remarkable irony. His administration has been burying our kids and grandkids in new debt and offered no plan to rein in spending. Republicans have been leading and offering solutions to put the brakes on this spending binge. The President has been AWOL from that debate”, aldus de voorzitter van het Huis.
“The President is sorely mistaken if he believes a bill to raise the debt ceiling and raise taxes would pass the House. The votes simply aren’t there – and they aren’t going to be there, because the American people know tax hikes destroy jobs. They also know Washington has been on a spending binge for many years, and they will only tolerate a debt limit increase if we stop it”, aldus Boehner. Lees meer hier.
