Boehner says the reaction by conservative groups to the budget deal is ‘ridiculous’, saying forcefully “if you’re for deficit reduction you’re for this agreement!”

I’m for no more Boehner in Congress.
I am soooo glad Boehner is being primaried and I hope Boehner loses. I pray someone will primary Ryan and kick his backside to the curb too.
look at that smug SOB Ryan laughing in the background. We oppose it, you morons, BECAUSE ITS A BAD DEAL!! you are not for the american people, your for your own political power, and the American people can see right through it!
Exactly. He represents the GOPe RINO and DC enterprise of looting the nation.
Just looking at that smug POS Ryan is beginning to make me ill. I can’t believe I used to like that guy.
What deficit reduction?
He put a drop of water in a five gallon bucket.
You beat me to it. $25 Trillion in debt is a deficit reduction? Oh the lies from the RINOs continue don’t they.
Just as Levin pointed out…the spending is on the front end and the ‘deficit reduction’ is on the back end over the next 10 years. It’s like 2 billion a year.
Which is not enough and will get killed or evaporate due to other spending in different bills.
Or simply reversed by the next Congress. Been there done that but the RINOs never learn.
Am I suffering from Stockholm Syndrome because I’m happy that there is non-zero deficit reduction?
When have the Democrats ever honored the “back end” of any agreement?
There will be no deficit reduction. How naive do they think we are?
Republicans fall for this ploy every time…or…they are part of the flim flam and we the people are the marks.
What a surprise. The DC cronyist Speaker of the House wants to continue the reckless, out of control spending to doomsday! 2014 will be a war between the constitutional conservatives (supported I am sure by many of the independents and blue dog [Reagan] Democrats) against the one party DC establishment who enrich themselves and their banking and business cronys at the expense of the people and the Republic.
It will be a struggle for the very heart and soul of America. One hopes that Palin, Levin, Cruz, Lee and others will carry the day, God willing.
Agree… Higher insurance premiums and higher deductibles have awakened some of those Reagan D’s out of their stupor. However, the R’s are desperate to fix that problem the D’s seem to be having with ObumaNOcare…insanity reigns in the GOPe.
This whole thing is about avoiding a gov’t shutdown. They are obsessed with the MSM defining “perception” of them. They don’t want another Ted Cruz media blitz to fall in their laps. Avoiding a gov’t shutdown is more important than doing the right thing and ringing the alarm bell and doing something that ACTUALLY makes a difference rather than poo-pooing with tiny budgets that won’t exist in a year anyway. What a letdown. The only way out of this is the Convention of the States to change Washington. Paul Ryan is a nice guy but the amount of time and energy spent for what we’re getting is so off base. sad time we live in.
You are exactly right, but the problem is that liberals, democrats, the media have in fact succeeded in making “doing the right thing” into political suicide.
So the question has turned into “do you want to ACTUALLY solve our nation’s problems or do you want to provide the media and Democrats more fodder to distract people with?”
Making a statement is best done with actual statements and clear cut arguments for why the debt is a serious problem. We cannot make statements through legislation when we DO NOT have enough numbers in Washington.
The media have unfortunately created a situation where actions DO NOT speak louder than words and until we takeover both houses enough to do what needs to be done all we can do is speak out and highlight the insanity of Democrats with every breath.
Unfortunately, we don’t seem to have any leaders willing or able to do that either. Not very effectively anyways………
Cruz is the man with two or three others. Unfortunately the GOPe hates them for it.
With the vast majority of Americans wanting ObamaCare defunded, this is the perfect time to shut it down once and for all. Instead Paul Ryan fully funded ObamaCare and they RINOs are lying saying “we are focused on ObamaCare.” They are focused on FUNDING it.
Exactly, Cruz and Lee shone the spotlight on OZero care and awakened the people as to what was going on. Their patriotism was confirmed after the ‘sign up’ commenced and all of the people realized the sham the program was.
No…Hell No on a convention of the States. Have you forgotten how many States went for Obuma in the last election (2012)? Wouldn’t take much for the Socialist States to buy off the remaining States needed to deem the Constitution null and void and write a new one.
How much more of this crap do we have to take? If this is what we get after voting Republicans to majority status in the House, then please tell me what the hell is the point?
Republicans in the House need to rise up and get rid of this loser Boehner and his sidekick Eric Cantor!
If these guys are too afraid to fight because of what the media might say about them, then just retire or become Democrats!
And they are begging for us to give them the Senate. Not a chance Boehner and McConnell, not a chance. I pray they primary opponents both win.
The ridiculous people you are referring to are the ones who (generally) vote for your party. You should not talk to them like that. You should do more listening and much less talking.
Not the brightest thing to say considering you have a primary challenger.
This next election will determine the strength of the TEA Party once and for all
I pray they are strong – so RINOs are killed off once and for all!
To be specific, it is the primary election that is crucial – they are underway now. True conservatives need our money and volunteer time.
I would rather be a minority party filled with people like Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz rather than have a majority with the likes of Boehner and Cantor and I will vote accordingly. I voted for my last RINO in 2012. My very last.
We give up the sequester cuts which were in place to allow more
spending now. The new cuts are promised over time which won’t happen.
GOP loses again and claims victory. What a bunch of useless worms.
Ryan claims victory because there were no tax increases. There wasn’t
going to be a tax increase. This bill gives the Dems and the Rino
more spending while lying and providing political cover. Nothing
more. These idiots think being identified with Cruz is a loser.
Really? How many of them showed up in their district following the
the shutdown and received a 7 minute standing ovation?
What’s next amnesty for the crony corporate crowd. We have to defeat the GOP
House leadership as much as the Senate to save this country from bankruptcy. Boehner, Ryan, Cantor McConell are not up to the job. Primary and defeat them all.
This bill has increased taxes disguised as fees.
Good point! I didn’t mention it.
Forgive my frankness, but I haven’t criticized Boehner much because he does have to deal with two factions of the GOP Congress. But after listening to him today with a petulant-boy Ryan smiling in background has pissed me off. Frack both of them.
These GOP establishment dolts always grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory. I’m sickened by the likes of these two fools combined with the McCain’s and Graham’s. I want to take back the Congress from them as much as the far lefties Democrats.
Sorry Johnny but based upon your track record I along with most folks just have to call bullsh!t on this latest plan. I hope people in Ohio wake up and primary his butt into retirement next year.
Liberal Democrats have gotten away with so much for so many years because they always endeavor to appear reasonable or “moderate” and will take great pains to hide behind their masks and avoid direct association with their socialist underpinnings. The media is and has ever been quite helpful in this goal.
We conservatives recognize this fact, but only because we pay careful attention to what they say versus what they do and what their history says about who they are and what they believe.
Most Americans, sad to say, have never paid that much attention (nor does the media help in that regard) and so Conservatives have often been successfully derided as conspiracy theorists, or outrageous partisans smearing their opponents as socialists.
The single BEST way to overcome this dynamic is and ALWAYS has been to allow Democrats to finally get one of their pet projects through and implemented WITHOUT Republican/Conservative watering down the potency so that the wider bulk of the American population could see FIRST HAND with their own two eyes that, IN FACT, conservatives were telling the truth. Thus the many stubbornly ignorant people out there will come to THEIR OWN conclusions and reject liberal democrats.
This is EXACTLY what we saw play out during the Carter administration and what we are NOW seeing with the implementation of ObamaCare. Strategically we cannot do anything to stop these liberal policies at the moment because we DO NOT have the numbers in congress.
Democrats WANT us to do things like Government shutdowns so they can go back to THEIR winning strategy of hiding behind their masks and continuing to paint conservatives as unreasonable. We need to STOP falling into that trap because it kills us every time and I for one want to see liberal policies roundly rejected for what they are, by a much more aware public. We can’t keep trying to protect people from their own stupidity in supporting Democrats, it’s time we let them touch the stove and get burned, while we prepare the ice.
What exactly are you trying to say? Is it that always retreating and caving is a good strategy? Reagan was completely opposed to such tactics and he was enormously successful both electorally and in government. That is what led to Carter’s demise.
aposematic summed it up above regarding GOP sugar-coating of Dem policies. We fight democrats, but then end up doing nothing more than easing the implementation of some horrible democrat legislation so that people don’t feel the full effect of how horrible it is.
So long as Democrats are going to play the propaganda game in the media that all Republican opposition is just being “the party of no” or obstructionist or racist or whatever, then Republicans should for once let the whiny brats in the room get exactly what they ask for and when it all explodes in everyone’s faces there will be no denying the foolishness of democrat policies.
This is happening now with Obamacare. Things like a government shutdown are only used as distractions to force blame back on republicans. Let the dems hang themselves with no rescue from us.
Reagan helped clean up after a previous series of democrat bombs had exploded and people were fed up. It’s unfortunate but often times stubborn fools have to experience things first-hand to believe what you’re telling them is true.
The D’s pass their disasters and count on the R’s adding some sugar to make it go down easier…so far the R’s keep doing that same old definition of insanity. Read somewhere today the R’s are requesting a meet with Obuma to discus ObumaNOcare. Will need to see what that’s about but have no doubt they will try to fix it, not make it go away…R’s are stuck on that insanity thing.
Exactly right! Republicans have always tried to either compromise and meet half way in the middle between reason and insanity OR they felt it’s their duty to save people from the nonsense of the democrats and water-down their legislation to something that is “more workable”.
I say DON’T make Democrat policies MORE workable by delaying implementation or taking a “half-arsed” approach, but let the Democrats own the whole thing and get exactly what they want so that people will see liberal policies for what they are…..crap!
Time to blast this jerk outta Washington.
Over the next ten years huh? Might there be another budget next year? Who knows? Wouldn’t this be the first budget since the year after O’ “took” office?
Ten years from now will they then be dealing with 100 different overlapping budget cuts? What is 10 X 10 anyway? I’ll have to get back to you on that. Will have to ask one of my RINO reps I guess. I wonder if he can count that low?
I hope most of us have a two year political plan, to rid the nation of these chancres which seem to be permanently attached to America’s inner thighs. America’s having a tough time walking with all that painful chancre-chafing. If she tried to run, would probably bleed to death. Heck, she’s already bleeding to death.
May our two year plan kick both them and their ten year plan, right in the A$$, and right out of office.
Absolutely correct; they didn’t do there job – they took the easy road so these idiots won’t pass a true budget via the Congressional committees that should debate and pass in committee before placing it on the floor of the House and Senate for a vote of the entire chamber.
Boehner’s diatribe against conservative groups was despicable. He accused conservative organizations of criticizing the deal because they hadn’t read it. Obviously, the man is an idiot. Since the deal was announced, all news outlets have been covering the so-call deal. How else could you have posted facts on the deal that are accurate?
Sen. Coburn has already come out against the deal and he knew what was in it and what was missing like cutting spending FOR REAL. Boehner and Ryan are proud of the new deal that will bring back trillion dollar yearly deficits while saving only $23 billion over 10 years -give me a break.
The only way this passes the House will be with a majority of Democrats votes.
Government by backroom deals and collusion.
“Wouldn’t this be the first budget since the year after O’ “took” office?”
No, its an agreement between the Senate D’s and the House RINO’s on yet another continuing resolution. They just call it a budget because it continues a Budget from long, long, long ago.
It’s a ‘budget deal’ not a budget. O would NEVER allow a budget because it would shift power of the purse back to the House and away from his blackmail CRs
Contact the GOP and tell them to lose your name, phone number and email address because you will never donate another dime to them. Donate to Tea party candidates directly instead.
Every time they call me for money I thank them for reminding me to vote DEMOCRAT.
I could sense the disdain he has for so-called “conservative groups”! And who might they be Johnny? Does Tea Party ring a bell to ya? Yes, those rascally tea parties! I guess listening to a favorite hosts from last night telling his buddy, Paul Ryan, from Wisconsin that this budget deal is mickey mouse set him off! And I say, “GOOD”! It should! This is not cutting anything, you’re just rearranging the chairs on the deck and asking the American people to pay more and more and more and more!
As far as I’m concerned, this politician has served way too many terms (12, if I’m not mistaken) and needs to go back to Ohio, tend bars, hear the stories from real Americans and live in reality! This man has no idea what the Federal Government is doing to this country! It’s time they listen!
Hey Congressman Ryan…….there’s a state senator in Wis that has something to say along with many other states on how to control the bloated Federal Government!
I’ve got a better idea.. someone just pop him in the mouth as hard as possible so his sorry self can’t speak for the rest of his miserable term.
I’m reminded of a football analogy of “Smash Mouth Football”.. where you go in and defeat the other team by beating the hell out of them until they give up.
That is what the likes of Boner, McLame, Old McDonald(Connell), Peter King of Fools and SOOOOOOO many others need (figuratively speaking of course, though literally is so tempting).. Add Paul Ryan to that list as well. He’s become a little weasel.
Those guys need to be beat up so bad that when they lose in 2014, they’re so bloodied that they don’t ever consider running for office again.
Remember this when it is time to send money to his opponent in the primary and working on phones to Ohio district to get this drunk out of office. We can afford to give up his seat to anyone just to see him cry into his red wine glass while he sobs against the people and the Constitution and how we don’t understand anything.
Boehner and McConnell have to go!
Wonder if Boehner’s Ohio webmaster told him about all the fast and furious comments that came into the website after Drudge linked it the other day. The link trumpeted Boehner filing for re-election in his district. The comments were so negative that commenters who had their remarks struck came back to say so! Every post I made triggered a “Your comment is under consideration.”
I merely asked if he would be running as a “D” this time. Some of the others that actually made it through (who knows for how long) tagged Johnny as “worst speaker evah.”
Too bad Johnny wasn’t on Air Force one to Africa and left behind to teach the imposter how to sign for the hearing impaired.
From what I can tell, your budget agreement reduces pretty much nothing in the first year, and in years two through ten isn’t worth the toilet paper it’s printed on. Who is the “agreement” with? Oh yeah, the lie machine, the hoax factory, the con-dors, the country killers, the big government gurus, your commie comrades.
But, “if you’re for deficit reduction you’re for this agreement!” No I am not for that agreement. It’s like a used disposable razor, a soggy paper plane, sandpaper minus the sand. And like that sandless paper, you useless tulips haven’t any grit!
Wilt on flimsy flowers, wilt on. The plows are coming. Mine’s just a rototiller.
I detect a note of skepticism in your comment Rs. I could be wrong.
I can’t disagree with anything you said, not that I understand some of what you said, but most of it…but I digress!
Another step backwards for the GOP establishment types.
“…The proposal would restore about $63 billion in funding that had been cut by the so-called sequester. Officials said the increases would be offset by a variety of spending reductions and increased fees elsewhere in the budget totaling about $85 billion over a decade, leaving enough for a largely symbolic deficit cut of $23 billion over the next decade.
The deal sets discretionary spending levels at just over $1 trillion, which is higher than the level of $967 billion set in…”
I believe these 2 short paragraphs prove Boehner’s diatribe on conservative organizations was a farce to protect RINOs – nothing but bull. We have all the info we need the deal is a political farce to protect big spenders in each party.
They have reelections to win next year is the bottom line…corporatists’ kickbacks to fill their reelection coffers for vote buying. All of the big players are out praising this so called deal–stealing more of the American people’s wealth/freedom.
I agree, but Boehner’s attack of conservative groups which also applies to GOP members in Congress who don’t like this deal is something I won’t forget. I don’t care about politics, Boehner’s words were also an attack of the conservative base and that includes people like you and I.
Why do they keep saying this will save (insert amount) in ten years. Congress can pass budgets every year so those kind of projections are pointless and a waste of time. Granted, the sequester cuts were miniscule to the over all spending, but cuts were made. This deal erases that and increases spending with the “promise” the government saves 23 billion in ten years. The sequester was triggered due to that both sides couldn’t agree on a deal.
In ten years I’m going to weigh 20 pounds less, going to hit the lotto, learn three new languages, run for Mayor of my town and win, go to the gym religiously and get ripped, make amends to anyone I may have offended through life and write four successful novels.
If anybody wants my autograph, now is the time to ask for it.
May I have your autogr…..O nevermind! LOL!
Only if you give me yours. I’m sure yours is going to be worth more.
LOL! Don’t count it Brother!
Awesome, can I be your agent?
Most certainly. I’ll pay you 10.00 a year for the first 9 years and then in the 10th year you’ll get the big bucks. That’s the year I hit the Lotto.
Leapin’ lizards, so am I.
And those so called savings are due to increased taxes disguised as fees. The taxes/fees stay and the so called reductions get squashed next Budget year. Both sides think we are stupid to keep believing their tripe; I believe that would be the definition of insanity.
Poor Boehner he’s been in DC so long he wouldn’t know a deficit reduction if it him in the face!
Wow…the anger in his voice. Why is it, the likes Boehner and McConnell show more displeasure with conservatives than they do with the liberals?
Because they are liberals and are being called out for being liberals.
Nah, Mitch and Weepy Moyer are just incumbents who don’t want groups like the Tea Party upsetting the gravy train. They aren’t liberals per se but they do enjoy the slop thrown them from the table by the libs.
Stop kicking the can , and do something to save our kids FUTURE , and never mind the BS .
Ryan’s smirk is just a little too broad. He and Boehner might do well to stay safe from constituents under the capital dome. Most disappointing.
I’m for a deficit of rinos. A drought of rinos. A paucity of rinos.
Take your blast and … nevermind. I just watched Westjet’s fantastic “Christmas Magic” video. I’ll just say this: boehner, an insult from you is a compliment. May the Grinch steal your “budget deal”.
Two words: JD WInteregg!
Oh yes, “if your for deficit reduction then you are for this deal”. the deficit this year is 17 trillion, and next year it will be 20 trillion. Yea! Great deficit reduction plan there, yes sir!
The “plan” will raise the deficit to $25 Trillion according to Breitbart.
The deficit reduction that we the people of USA will receive are the same as the $2500.00 savings in the obamacare plan. a myth, a fantasy.
A myth, a fantasy, a LIE.
I guess only Liberals and RINO’s are welcome to their opinions but not Conservatives. FU Boehner.
Sorry chief, I’m blasting YOU and Paul Ryan. This is B.S. and YOU KNOW IT!!! Look, we already know you’re a RINO of the GOPe – sworn enemy of the Tea Party. So your hollow words are meaningless. You’re a spineless punk and we all know it. Your time is almost up – YOU WILL BE VOTED OUT. So please, just shut up.
I turned off Mark last night when Ryan came on. He lied through his teeth the last time he was on about amnesty helping the American economy. Does he think we’re stupid?
He has no character. He’s part of the cesspool, the swamp, the rattle snake pit, along with the Muslim terrorist infiltrator, Barack Hussein Obama, “Son of African Soil.”
Where’s his birth certificate, Ryan? Why are you working with people who’ve caused Americans with cancer to lose their coverage? You’re working with Patty Murray, one of those who’s seized peoples medicine? And Luis Gutierezz communist? You’re slime now.
Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld Quips: Impeach Him; Obama Kenyan-Born Interloper…
He is and BOEHNER, CANTOR, RYAN, AND THE REST HAVE LIED ABOUT IT FROM THE BEGINNING. THEY’RE ALL LYING FOR EACHOTHER. I HOPE KARMA CATCHES UP WITH THESE SNAKES, SOON.
NBC Correspondent: Obama Is The Son Of Africa
I think you tapped my anger. 🙂
…a perfect example why TERM LIMITS are necessary .”
I agree LibertyUSA! Never was it intended for individuals to make a career out of serving in public office but now it’s become very lucrative to do so. I say not only term limits but lower the pay structure, entitlements, and any other cushy deals they get! I believe much needs to be debated on this crucial subject!
Pigs at the trough.
I support that but politicians are sneaky little slime balls. They just recycle themselves and move onto other branches of government or fly under the radar somewhere else in the political world.
We’ve become the enemy we’re trying to fight.
Before we take our country back, we have got to take our party back. Unreal
Nothing should come before taking our country back. I don’t want this party back, in any case. They aren’t going to get me back.
Hmmm…..this is how they work things out in the Georgian parliament: (over the Ukraine unrest)
Sometimes you gotta wonder if in this country, it will ever get down to this! Not suggesting this but it sure seems like people are getting real tired of the shenanigans going on!
Notice how he says this the day (or two) AFTER filing for re-election. That tells me all I need to know about him and his state.
So, these establishment types are angry at Americans for pointing out that they are destroying the nation. They’re mad because they’re being found out.
Mr. Boehner, go to hell. You are complicit in wrecking this nation. Out of one side of your corrupt mouth, along with that sleazy Cantor, you claim you don’t like Obamacare, yet you fund it. You are causing people with cancer to lose their health care coverage, including children.
Go to hell, and take that little boy in a man’s suit with you, Paul, I’m a liar, Ryan. He’s part of a cult now. He’s lost all credibility. These people are BANK ROBBERS IN SUITS.
Wow, watch this video: budget deal a ‘joke and betrayal’.
John, since you are already being primaried I would be more conciliatory to your base.
Never happen! Hopefully the primary challenge will succeed.
I pray daily and also the primary challenge against Boehner will succeed. Please someone tell me Boehner will lost the SOH after 1/1/14.
And if Boehner makes it to the General, all Ohioans should vote for the Donk running against him! There’s one way to get him out!
Boehner is a wimp kicking his dog because he isn’t getting his way. What if lil mac doesn’t have JB’s back but changes his toon to knifing him in the back so he will look conservative back home.
From Matt Bevin via the Hill “McConnell challenger Matt Bevin accused McConnell of being “missing in action” on the budget deal.
“Instead of leading, he is dodging a major issue while waiting to see which way the political winds are blowing,” he said.
I am an Ohioan and nothing would please me more than for him to lose his job! He has forgotten his place! He works for US! Not the other way around! What a spineless piece of establishment waste. Tired of the games.
He doesn’t work for us. He works for Obama.
Sorry, but you lost me at 17.5 trillion
He’s just on edge because this is before he had his first cocktail of the day.
Boehner owes his office to conservatives and the Tea Party. He wasn’t Newt Gingrich who spent years creating a platform and ran for the House leadership on the Contract for America. Boehner is the typical Rino who cut deals to earn his position. It’s the Peter principle where we have an inarticulate, incoherent person like Boehner in charge of the House with no vision or governing principle for the GOP. He punishes conservatives in his caucus, undermines their positions and attacks the base. Does Pelosi ever attack her base? No. The House leadership needs to go.
I don’t see how I can support these RINO fools like Boner and Cryan.
The two traitors in this video have decided to give our country away to illegal immigrants who have no right to it. Instead of enforcing our laws they will eliminate the illegality of it all. To heck with the ever shrinking middle class who have less work and less pay and now more in healthcare cost. Then when the tax increases come with this plan, well that just about makes us the working/retired poor. What we want doesn’t matter to these two RINOS. They work for the American citizens not the NWO! oh wait….
Ryan is now serving his 8th term. That’s 16 years. He was elected at the age of 27. He now has no connection to the real world.
Look at Lyin’ Ryan smirking in the backround. He was good for WI but it would appear he’s become another casualty of DC corruption.
A useless pos.
