Boehner Dismisses Ted Cruz's 'Total Nonsense' On Budget Deal
Breitbart -- Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” former Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticisms of his budget deal with President Barack Obama as a “complete and utter surrender” is “total nonsense.”
Boehner said, “That’s just total nonsense. This is — we got real entitlement reform in this agreement. We’ve got a big group of members who need more money for our national defense. And all the increases in spending are offset with spending reductions elsewhere in the government.”
On working with Obama, he added, “At the end of the day it’s about doing the best we can, considering those things, on behalf of the American people. So, we had a lot of conversations. Some were better than others.”
Blog Author's Comments -- John Boehner has done enough damage to the American people during his time as Speaker of the House. The GOP will do what they always do when they've included "cuts to spending" in the budget deal, they will only be realized several years in the future. Last week, Ted Cruz called Boehner’s sweeping bipartisan budget deal a “golden parachute” for the departing Speaker and “a slap in the face to conservatives.” I must agree with Ted Cruz.
