Boehner: Next Fight To Be
About Trillions, Not Billions

by John Boehner - April 11th, 2011 - USA Today

This week, Congress is moving toward approval of an agreement on the largest spending cut in history to help begin to create a better environment for private-sector job growth.


But the agreement is far from perfect, and we need to do much more if we're serious about creating new jobs, fixing our spending-driven debt crisis, and ending the uncertainty that continues to plague our economy.

That's why this week, we'll advance our fight from saving billions of dollars to saving trillions of dollars...

Obama has already indicated that he plans to change the dialog to one, not of cutting spending, but of soaking the rich. The Obama program has not changed.

It starts with raising taxes on small business while giving his big corporation donors increased corporate welfare and exemptions, uses renewed smoke and mirrors to hide the incredible future costs of his increased spending on health care, provides special privileges for union thugs and their leaders and finishes with agressive simulus spending paired with rampant printing of money to fuel an inflation driven economic recovery. Even the fraudulent job numbers currently being touted indicate Obama has no plans to deal with reality.

Wednesday night will be all theatre, few specifics, grand generalities and a return to his standard technique of replacing action with teleprompter based rhetoric.

However it is clear that some in the Republican Party will not tolerate this plan. Boehner and Ryan have thrown down the gauntlet. Stop fiddling. We need action on the trillions being wasted. The time for action, not rhetoric, is now. It will be interesting to see if the American people have the courage to follow the adults - and support them.
