Boehner peddles a blatant falsehood
Here’s an exchange between George Stephanopoulus and House Speaker John Boehner yesterday morning regarding a “clean” budget bill (that is, a bill devoid of any extraneous matters, like repeal of Obamacare):
STEPHANOPOULOS: … I take it from your answer that you’re not prepared to schedule a clean bill on government funding.
BOEHNER: There are not the votes in the House to pass a clean CR.
And HERE‘s Barbara Morrill’s response:
Baloney. There are more than enough Republicans who have said they would vote for a clean continuing resolution that would immediately end the disastrous Republican shutdown of the government. And the only thing keeping that from happening is John Boehner’s cowardly refusal to buck the tea party wing of his caucus.
