    Exclusive: What Boehner Told His Caucus

    From a source familiar with the call, this is what House Speaker John Boehner told House Republicans on Sunday:
    I went on “Fox News Sunday” this morning because it was the most effective way to tell everyone where things stand. It boils down to this: The president wants his $2.4 trillion debt limit increase all at once, without any guarantees that we’re going to cut more than $2.4 trillion in spending. The administration says they have to have it all upfront so we don’t have to deal with this again until after the next election. You heard the president say that himself on TV the other night.

    We’ve seen this coming all year long. But here’s the challenge: To stop him, we need a vehicle that can pass in both houses.

    You know, last week we passed the Cut, Cap & Balance Act and showed America our solution, our vision, as we did months ago with our budget. So we’ve done our job. And I think the nation knows it. But as you all know, the Senate tabled the Cut, Cap & Balance Act. And I think the nation knows that, too. So the question becomes — if it’s not the Cut, Cap & Balance Act itself — what CAN we pass that will protect our country from what the president is trying to orchestrate?

    The government takes in about 3 1/2 trillion dollars a year. Taxes; fees, stuff like that.

    They want to spend 5 trillion.

    They owe 14 trillion.

    If you ran a business like that you'd be looking for a sucker buyer so that you could get out of town.

    This is a bad, bad situation...............:mad:

    Jon Stewart actually had a point the other night - we're going to have to start parking our country on side streets so the Chinese can't repossess it. :mad:
