Every time I hear about this Boehner guy I seem to like him more. I cant help but like someone that calls things what they are.
Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) had a few choice words about House Speaker Nancy Pelosis (D-Calif.) landmark climate-change bill after its passage Friday.
When asked why he read portions of the cap-and-trade bill on the floor Friday night, Boehner told The Hill, Hey, people deserve to know whats in this pile of st.
Using his privilege as leader to speak for an unlimited time on the House floor, Boehner spent an hour reading from the 1200-plus page bill that was amended 20 hours before the lower chamber voted 219-212 to approve it.
Eight Republicans voted with Democrats to pass the bill; 44 House Democrats voted against it.
By the way, if you wanna know who the eight areno problem.
Indeednot one red cent.
