Whiner Boehner Begs for Democrat Help with Debt Limit Vote

This guy is a pathetic waste of taxpayer dollars, whining to the president and congressional Democrats to help him fight the voices of reason in his party who want to stop the insanity:
WASHINGTON — With Congress momentarily freed from the Syrian crisis, lawmakers plunged back into their bitter fiscal standoff on Thursday as Speaker John A. Boehner appealed to the Obama administration and Democratic leaders to help him resolve divisions in the Republican ranks that could lead to a government shutdown by month’s end.

In meetings with Democratic and Republican Congressional leaders on Thursday after a session with Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew on Wednesday, Mr. Boehner sought a resumption of negotiations that could keep the government running and yield a deficit-reduction deal that would persuade recalcitrant conservatives to raise the government’s borrowing limit.
Much of the federal government will shut down as of Oct. 1 unless Congress approves new spending bills to replace expiring ones, and by mid-October, the Treasury Department will lose the borrowing authority to finance the government and pay its debts.
“It’s time for the president’s party to show the courage to work with us to solve this problem,” said Mr. Boehner, who argued that budget deals have been part of past agreements to raise the debt limit
Boehner claims to oppose Obamacare, the biggest threat to the federal budget in U.S. history, but he's not interested in doing the only thing that can be done to have an impact: De-fund it. He's had three years to fight this budget-killing socialized medicine plan. But as costs continue to skyrocket and opposition, even from members of Obama's party and the union thugs who "helped craft" it continue to mount, every effort Boehner has attempted has been mediocre and ineffective. He simply refuses to go out and make a strong case for eliminating Obamacare altogether when he's had years to do it.

 In the final analysis, it appears that Boehner is just in favor of business as usual. Don't want to do anything to piss of the president and his cohorts in Congress. In fact we'll just whine to them for "help" in dealing with the rogue agents in the Republican Party that want to  -- "gasp" -- SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT! Oh no, the inhumanity of it all. We just can't let this happen! In fact, shutting down the government may be the only thing that can be done to draw attention to the need to clean up the horrible fiscal mess the politicians have gotten us into. It's been done many times before and, somehow,  the country survived. But the pansy-ass Boehner is deathly afraid of this showdown.

Obamacare, Social Security, the Great Society programs -- Food Stamps, Medicare, Medicaid, all of the various housing programs -- all Democrat programs with the exception of Medicare Part D which was a GW Bush mistake -- have and are bankrupting us and placing a crushing burden of debt on our children and grandchildren. We don't know HOW much Obamacare is going to cost if it isn't stopped, but the costs we know about have more than doubled in the last three years from Obama's claim of "less than a trillion dollars" to $3 trillion-plus. We know that the other social programs combined have unfunded liabilities of $100 trillion plus. That doesn't count the current national debt -- $17 trillion -- of which Barack the Terrible is responsible for $9 trillion. And Boehner doesn't think this mess is worth shutting down the government for? Not only that he's begging for Democrat help to increase the national debt even more.

Harry Reid had something to say about the pathetic whiner Boenher:
“I like John Boehner,” Mr. Reid added. “I do feel sorry for him.”
Why does Harry "the worst senate majority leader in recorded history" like and pity Mr. Boehner? Because Boehner is a pathetic fool who needs to be run out of office on a rail.
