Boehner Had One Chance

And he blew it.

I just sent this email to Speaker Boehner:

I just wanted to thank you Speaker Boehner for selling us out during the recent budget battle.

Promise 100 billion in cuts, deliver 38. Don't forget, the initial 100 billion was less than 7% of the yearly deficit.

So now, instead of spending $1,500,000,000,000 more each year than we have, we will only spend $1,462,000,000,000 more each year than the government has as income.

Congratulations on your success?

And you managed to sell out the pro-life movement in the bargain.

Again, well done.

Provided you support Nancy Pelosi.

Kiss it all good bye friends.

And then there is this.

it might change, so here is the part I find Interesting:

NJ: A blow to Boehner, Obama and the nation

How did it—this incompetence—get this bad? After all, the fight over about $7 billion in differences in this year's budget is about 0.2 percent of the $3.5 trillion federal budget. It's like a family making $100,000 falling apart over $200.

I would think a more pertinent comparison would be one of a family making $100,000 a year and spending $142,000.

they don't seem to think that borrowing is a big deal. I guess they're right. Borrowing is easy.

Paying back on the other hand...
