Boehner Still Doesn't Get It

Drama king, Republican Rep. John Boehner of Ohio had a few words to say about the Democratic stimulus package, according to First Read at
...."Oh. My. God," said a stuttering Minority Leader John Boehner moments ago at a news conference. He was reacting after having just read the provisions outlined by Democrats today....

....Boehner says that much of it isn't going to do anything to help the economy in the short term. He says the approach by Democrats is to "clean out every dime from the taxpayer," and that the nation can't "borrow and spend it's way to prosperity."

Well, thank you Mr. Boehner. We are in the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression because of the Republicans and his Republican President. George W. Bush got us into this mess by doing nothing. The Republicans and their de-regulation of many businesses and industries, created a wild west atmosphere in the financial markets. Now Boehner and his supporters want the country to do nothing. He'd like us to just sit here and let things correct themselves while more people lose their jobs, their healthcare, and their homes. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. We can't wait.
