Boehner: “There is no limit to the amount of spending we’re willing to cut.”

I like hearing this from Speaker John Boehner. However, I want to see a willingness from the Speaker to put some action behind those words.

On Fox News Sunday, Boehner did discuss the debt ceiling. Many republicans are split on this issue. It'll be interesting to see where the GOP will go. I see that they may be using this as a bargaining chip for cuts.

  1. The real test will be if the Republicans have the spine to cut entitlements and defense spending. So far, they haven’t been willing to do even the easiest thing, eliminating earmarks. I expect that all they will cut is the growth of projected spending, not cutting spending levels to at least 2008 levels. Boehner has a way of saying one thing and then failing to lead. That was also the signal he gave today. He stated bluntly that he will not dictate to his party what should be on the agenda.

    I kinda prefer that nobody dictate.
    I would have thought we’d had enough of that the last two years.

  3. JLancaster says:

    It should be very easy. Cut the Department of Indoctrination, Department of No Energy, FCC, EPA and I’m sure many others can go. They are not constitutional. Put the people in the same unemployment line that their master the impostor Obama caused.

    It’s not the job of the Federal Government to provide jobs for people. Too bad.

    “Another not unimportant consideration is, that the powers of the general government will be, and indeed must be, principally employed upon external objects, such as war, peace, negotiations with foreign powers, and foreign commerce. In its internal operations it can touch but few objects, except to introduce regulations beneficial to the commerce, intercourse, and other relations, between the states, and to lay taxes for the common good. The powers of the states, on the other hand, extend to all objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, and liberties, and property of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the state.”
