This week’s Republican address delivered by John Boehner was all about jobs, jobs, jobs – and how in the Republican’s opinion Democrats aren’t creating any.
"Unfortunately," he said, "Democrats in Congress are busy making backroom deals so that they don’t have to pass a budget this year. They’d rather keep on spending than seize this critical opportunity to create jobs and boost our economy. But every family knows that in tough times, passing a budget is more important – not less important."
The Republican leader also called out the president for failing to press congressional Democrats into passing a budget resolution, calling it "a stunning failure of leadership – the kind of leadership President Obama promised to provide."
Left unmentioned was the fact that Boehner and the Republicans failed to pass a budget when they controlled Congress in 2006 the last midterm elections year.
