And gentlemen we have a deal. If things would just go to the floor for a vote then America could be legislated again. I was wrong about Boehner. I did not think he has the moxie to have a vote before his speakership vote.
Boehner was right a new congress and new negotiations would have started Jan 3rd.But Mr. Boehner (R., Ohio), who didn't take a position on the bill, turned back conservative demands that the bill be amended to include more spending cuts. He argued that such changes risked killing the bill—and exposing the GOP to blame for tax increases, spending cuts and possible turmoil in the economy as a result.
