John Boenher August 2011 " When you look at this final agreement that we came to with the white House, I got 98 percent of what I wanted. I'm pretty happy. "
Why are we doing this dance again? Just so Boenher can be a stick in the mud again and be happy because he's in the news?
Boehner lost 8 seats in the House. Obama won 51-47, with a 5 million vote margin of victory, 332 - 206.
What gives? Is it just a slow news week? The markets are fine - they get it.
Boehner got his 98%. Tax rates return to Clinton era rates on January 1, just what Boehner asked for. We get Boehner's spending cuts on January 1.
Let's move on and fix this country. Let's fix immigration. Let's fix the jobs crisis. Boehner told us "Elections have consequences"
