Per the new speaker, Paul Boehner.
“We played the cards that were dealt the best we can.” Ryan also cited
the halt to an export ban on crude oil as a victory for the GOP. One can
only ask in astonishment: “You were dealt a hand? Who was dealing the
hand? Are not Republicans running the House?” With all due respect to
the Speaker, he is making it sound like he and his GOP colleagues are
Martians who just landed in a new world and are stuck with the mess they
discovered. Not to put too fine a point on this but — hello? — Ryan and
the GOP were in charge in the first place! They elected John Boehner
Speaker of the House. They dealt the cards. And suddenly now they are
mystified at the cards they dealt themselves?
Help me here.
Boehner reprehensible at best replaced by his brother as much as it changes it stays the same.
But Dem's do not rejoice as your no better as in 2006 you chanted give us the power to stop the GOP's excessive spending. Done and then the spendfest began. It continues today with a new partisan entitlement program which insure more people and provides little improvement. Is it worth 1/4th of all government spending?
The right complains and does nothing. The left complains and does the same. Neither party is worthy of our votes as the government like a virus continues to grow unabated consuming the host.
