    As I've been reading elsewhere and agree – it seems Boehner is responding to his corporate masters.

    Seems as though he is admitting the facts that we cannot stop the spending fast enough. And we must stop the spending......

    Oh I'm sure he knew it all along, just like they all do in Congress. What I'm wondering is why he is saying this now.

    Boehner is just another self-serving politician....and I'm an 'r'. I hope Ohio bounces his ass the next time he's up for reelection.

    I say to the young 'r's we put in last November..........STICK TO YOUR GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Do you think that means the GOP (or least the leadership) will accept the concessions that President Obama has offered up?
