John Boehner at City Club: Fire the Obama economic team. Cleveland.com. Some excellent points on the incredible economy the Democrats have instituted for the country.
Only in Washington would it be acceptable to think that taxpayers should have to pay for the privilege of keeping more of their own hard-earned money.
We will not solve our fiscal challenges until we cut spending and have real economic growth – and we won’t have real economic growth if we keep raising taxes on small businesses.
Minority leader Boehner: Fire Obama’s economic team, extend tax cuts. WP. The man believes in hanging responsibility on those whose shoulders it squarely rests upon, and who have failed to do their jobs adequately.
Boehner said President Obama’s team lacks “real-world, hands-on experience” in creating jobs that are needed for a full economic recovery. The Republican lawmaker cited reports that some senior aides complained of “exhaustion,” including the recently departed budget chief Peter Orszag.
“President Obama should ask for – and accept – the resignations of the remaining members of his economic team, starting with Secretary Geithner and Larry Summers, the head of the National Economic Council,” Boehner said in the morning speech to business leaders at the City Club of Cleveland. The mass dismissal, he added, would be “no substitute for a referendum on the president’s job-killing agenda. That question will be put before the American people in due time. But we do not have the luxury of waiting months for the president to pick scapegoats for his failing ‘stimulus’ policies.”
Whether the Democrats heed the advice of Boehner remains to be seen. It seems more likely that the November elections will bring in fresh Congressional faces of opposition to the current suffocating economic Democratic action plan.
