America in Political Rebellion
House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) says the country is in the midst of a “political rebellion” because his Democratic colleagues are bankrupting America.
He noted that Democrats promised “jobs, jobs, jobs” with their 1,100-page stimulus, but instead America got “spending, spending, spending.”
The House Democrats accused him of being disrespectful for opposing the massive stimulus bill. This was countered, saying “What’s disrespectful is wasting $800 billion and expecting our kids and grandkids to pay the bills.”
The congressman also attacked the cap-and-trade bill that passed the House, noting it would impose a $1,750 energy tax on Americans and require “Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to have ‘green mortgages.'” On health care, he pointed out that H.R. 3200 would create 51 new agencies, boards, commissions, and mandates.
Boehner also attempted to dispel claims that there is no taxpayer funding of abortion in the legislation, stating that “If you look at the bill in the House, it allows for taxpayer-funded abortions.”
Boehner noted that the TEA parties are a great success because people realize liberals in Washington are “dimming the lights of opportunity for our kids and grandkids.”
Not to be overlooked, the congressman also said he is focused on taking the gavel away from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. That is a worthwhile objective under any circumstance.
