Giving cover to weak-kneed Republicans in the House, the weak-kneed House Speaker John Boehner passed a debt-increasing $1.1 Trillion Continuing Resolution. To add insult to injury, Boehner has the nerve to say “it’s a good bill.” The spending frenzy now goes to the Democrat-controlled Senate for approval.
Speaker Boehner has a habit of telling republicans how tough he’s going to be on cutting government spending and neutering Obamacare. And the 2010 and 2014 mid-terms show that that’s exactly what the folks want. But that’s only before elections. Once handed the power to be effective, he folds and kowtows to the regime.
It’s like the national debt topping $18 Trillion last week never happened.
