    Almost sounded to me as if he was telling the opposition "take it or leave it we've done our part and will do no more"

    The bill just passed with 0 democratic votes. I guess now it will collect dust in the senate.

    If only he held power in a nation with a political system in which that's anywhere near an adequate or tenable position.

    There are 4 days left till obamatastriphy happens. He couldn't write another bill if he had too. So it seems logical to me no?

    He walked away from a $4 trillion deal because his caucus couldn't accept giving the opposition something they wanted in return for getting what they want. You seem to find it very impressive that Boehner has now made a last ditch attempt to save his speakership by hastily drawing up a bill that he boasts the Senate Leadership and President hate. Fantastic, he's opted again to save his political hide by currying favor with the far right nuts in his party.

    Color me nauseated.

    It was such a "tenable" position when Obuttheadcare was jammed up our asses, comrade.

    But nobody cares what coward Boehner says. His ignorance is ringing far and wide in the good old USA.

    He walked away from fruitless negotiations with Obama because every time they agreed on something Obama would come back wanting more.
    Why are you not nauseated that the Democrats failed to pass a budget for 2 years? Why are you not nauseated that the Democrats have presided over the biggest spend-fest in post war history? Why are you not nauseated that the Democrats have failed to produce a proposal? Why are you not nauseated that Democrats act like the only problem is they can't get what they want?
    It is because you are an ignorant partisan little pissant.

    Noehner sounds really angry. I can only guess at what happened. Yes, I'll bet he's worked very hard trying to gt people to agree to something.
    But you cannot negotiate with terrorists. You cannot negotiate with Democrats. Both are so certain of their views that compromise is impossible. It's either their way or they blow the whole thing up.

    At least try to be honest. They had a tentative deal UNTIL Obama raised the revenue goal by 490 billion

    So yea, he did what I would have done. How can you make a deal with someone who keeps changing the paramiters?
