Speaker Boehner has been experiencing a lot of disappointment lately:
President Obama phoned Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Friday to tell him he will not negotiate with Republicans on the debt ceiling, according to a readout provided by the Speaker’s office.
Boehner told the president he was “disappointed” to hear his position, an aide said.
“Given the long history of using debt limit increases to achieve bipartisan deficit reduction and economic reforms, the Speaker was disappointed but told the president that the two chambers of Congress will chart the path ahead. It was a brief call,” the aide said.
Given the long history of raising the debt ceiling without making much of a fuss about it, Boehner’s aide is completely full of it.
So, what’s the Speaker supposed to do now?
He obviously has no idea.
