And so, we say to you, Mr. Boehner, do not waiver, do not "compromise", and do not flinch. If you do, you betray the people who elevated you to the position of Speaker of the House.
When the American people told you to stop ObamaCare and stop the Obama-Reid spending spree, they were deadly serious.
The 61 billion dollars in cuts that was initially proposed by the House was pathetic. For far too long the American people have put up with inadequate and insufficient rubbish. Hindsight is 20-20, but would it not have been spectacular if our GOP leaders initially put 500 billion, or 1 trillion or 1.5 trillion in cuts on the table.
The Associated Press wrote was told by Rep. Alan West (R-FL): "In light of a government report suggesting duplications in federal programs cost up to $200 billion, even $61 billion in new cuts seems piddling, said Rep. Allen West, R-Fla. ... What does that say to the American people?"
It is time to draw a stark contrast between the competing visions for America's future.
