HOUSE REPUBLICANS CAN'T NAME ONE ITEM THEY WOULD CUT FROM THE BUDGET!
While campaigning before the midterm elections Republicans obsessively opposed government spending.
Tea Party and Republican candidates vowed to cut spending, but now House Republicans — when asked specifically what they would cut from the budget — many couldn’t list even one single item.
When asked, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said, “The line-item will be across-the-board.” John Boehner the new Speaker of the House, who promised repeatedly to stop government spending, also could not think of one program we could do without.
NBC’s Brian Williams asked Boehner to name a specific item he’d cut, and Boehner couldn’t deliver:
WILLIAMS: Name a program right now that we could do without.
BOEHNER: I don’t think I have one off the top of my head.
John Boehner swore he would “never compromise the will of the people.” Mr. Speaker, the will of the people did not want tax cuts extended to the wealthy and they do not want Health Care reform repealed.
You are for the people or you are not — and by people, we mean ‘we the people’ not ‘we the wealthy people.’
