    I guess Boehner only wants US to be fiscally conservative?

    I agree. Call "Boner" and tell him you want him to cut even more ok?

    "Cutting", is precisely why they got elected, right?

    I particularly liked this bit... that the OP chose not to highlight....

    When Democrats gained a majority in 2007, the budget for the office of the speaker's office — considered the most powerful of any in Congress — exploded. As speaker, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., engineered a $2 million, 71 percent increase immediately after that transfer of party control

    Fucking Democrats bleed the country dry and then bitch at the GOP for not fixing their fuck up.

    I DID read that. What a quick win this could have been for Boehner and his new found conservative friends? They could have pointed out how Pelosi had exploded her budget and how the new Tea Bag friendly GOP would be immediately putting a stop to this outrageous spending enacted by the Democrats. Instead, he chose to keep his money intact. You decide who is allowing the "bleeding" you speak of, to continue....

    Yank is right. The repubs promised huge spending cuts but now that they have power they are reluctant to give up any of that power. This is why I hate almost all politicians these days.

    So, if this is true, Boehner wants all of us taxpayers to tighten our belts while he and the rest of the GOP politicians expand theirs???? I think the Tea Baggers are gonna be pissed.
