Facing charges from President Obama and Senate Democrats upset that Republican leaders are running a “do-nothing House,” Speaker John Boehner struck back Monday, claiming that his chamber has sent over 350 bills to the Senate this year, and in July delivered several to the White House for Obama to s…
WASHINGTON -- Unwilling to *** the markets and divided among themselves, House Republicans backed away from a battle over the government's debt limit Tuesday and permitted President Barack Obama's Democratic allies to drive quick passage of a measure extending Treasury's borrowing authority without any concessions from the White House. The 221-201 vote came hours after Speaker John Boehner announced that his fractured party would relent. Just 28 Republicans voted for the measure, including Boehner and his top lieutenants. But 193 Democrats more than compensated for the low support among Republicans. Senate Democrats hoped to vote on the legislation as early as Wednesday and send it to Obama for his signature. The move was denounced by many conservative groups but came after most Republicans in the House made clear they had no taste for another high-stakes fight with Obama over the nation's debt ceiling, which must be raised so the government can borrow money to pay all of its bills. The bill would permi . ...
Obama to Dems: Boehner will pass immigration reform in 2014 "President Obama has told Senate Democrats he expects Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to pass immigration reform this year, defying predictions the issue is dead for 2014. Obama believes Republicans will feel politically vulnerable if they fail to advance the issue, a high priority among Hispanic voters, according to Democratic senators who met with the president this week." Obama sees immigration reform as a source for optimism in what has otherwise shaped up as a tough year for Democrats. “He predicted the House would pass something this year,” said Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), who attended the meeting."
Speaker John Boehner, in a new YouTube video titled “Mr. President, What Are You Waiting For?,” pushes back against claims from the White House and Senate Democrats that the Republican-led House is obstructionist and opposed to governing.
HARRY REID AND SENATE DEMOCRATS ARE HOLDING UP 24 'JOBS BILLS' PASSED BY THE HOUSE With Gallup's recent report that the U.S. underemployment rate now stands at a jaw-dropping 19 percent, Speaker John Boehner wants to know why Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Democrats have yet to take action on the 24 jobs bills passed by the Republican-led House of Representatives. If the president really wants to get the economy moving again, maybe he'll pick up the phone and call Senator Reid and ask Senate Democrats to get off their rear ends. Some political analysts believe Speaker Boehner's comments may forecast the Republican Party's congressional election strategy. According toReuters, everywhere Speaker Boehner goes, he now carries in his left breast-coat pocket a four by eight card that lists the two dozen jobs bills that have passed the House but lay dormant in the Democrat-controlled Senate. Boehner's card, says Nathan Gonzales of the Rothenberg Political Report, may presage a broader electoral s . ...
WASHINGTON -- In the latest round of the government shutdown showdown, several congressional Republicans are pursuing a policy that they either privately disavow or readily admit is unfair. In his final offer to the Senate Democrats before the shutdown deadline was hit Monday night, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) demanded an end to the federal health care subsidies that aides and lawmakers receive when purchasing coverage through the newly created exchanges. According to Politico, however, Boehner privately worked behind the scenes to save those very same subsidies, which existed before Congress was forced to purchase coverage on the exchanges and are estimated to be worth between $5,000 and $12,000 annually. Boehner's own staffers, moreover, worked diligently to ensure that his negotiations with Democrats to maintain the subsidies remained a secret. Though many Republican members were willing to vote Monday night for ending the subsidies, at least 20 philosophically oppose the move, a GOP aide on th ...

House Republicans Plan Three-Month Debt-Limit Increase Jan. 19 (Bloomberg) -- House Republicans revised their strategy for the coming months’ fiscal debate with Democrats, saying they’ll agree to a three-month debt-limit increase without demanding spending cuts as part of the deal. Instead, Republicans will use the planned Jan. 23 House vote on a debt-ceiling increase to try to force Senate Democrats to adopt a budget to spell out their spending plan. “We are going to pursue strategies that will obligate the Senate to finally join the House in confronting the government’s spending problem,” Speaker John Boehner of Ohio said in a statement yesterday at the end of House Republicans’ policy retreat at a resort near Williamsburg, Virginia. The strategy represents an acknowledgment by Republican leaders that they need to reassess their goals following President Barack Obama’s re-election and an increased Democratic majority in the Senate. The Treasury Department has said the U.S. will exceed its ...
Turning back rumors that he would face a challenge from some conservative disgruntled about his leadership, House Republicans re-elected Speaker John Boehner to preside over the House of Representatives.
"You know there are nearly 40 of our jobs bills sitting over in the United States Senate, all part of our plan for American job creators that we’ve been working on all year. These bills will cut red tape, remove government barriers that make it harder for small businesses to hire new workers. There are bills over there that address our debt, expand American energy production, and approve projects like the Keystone Pipeline. There are bills over there to stop the president’s tax hikes and fix the tax code to bring more jobs home from overseas. These are good ideas, all passed with bipartisan support here in the House, but President Obama won’t work with us to find common ground or urge Senate Democrats to take action. Why? Because Democrats have failed to lead." - Speaker John Boehner
Despite the fact that at least 127 House Republicans have signed a letter that calls upon Speaker John Boehner and House GOP leadership to cease any further funding of President Obama’s health care law, Speaker Boehner seems poised to continue appropriating funds for ObamaCare. At the speaker’s press conference on Tuesday, Boehner was asked by CNS News whether a new continuing resolution (CR) will permit funding for ObamaCare. The speaker responded, “Our goal would be to make sure government is funded and any political talk of a government shutdown is put to rest.” Speaker Boehner sounded rather defensive in his response, observing that the House has voted 33 times “to defund, to repeal, and change ObamaCare.” The day before, Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy also responded to CNS News defensively. “We’re not at a CR yet, but I don’t see this government ever being shut down,” McCarthy said. “I think you’ll find that we’ll get this job done. We have displayed many times our desire to r ...
A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) pointed out that Senate Democrats had declined to act on the drought measure, which he said had "bipartisan support,'' including backing from Mr. Ryan. "The weak attempt by the White House to manufacture a controversy illustrates the president's desperation to change the subject to anything other than his failures on jobs and the economy," said the spokesman, Kevin Smith.

While Senate Democrats will attempt to shift the focus to jobs and the economy, House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell both indicated in separate op-eds on Friday their intention to push for repeal.
