Urgent: Boehner on relacing the sequester: “We should not have to move a third bill before the Senate gets off their ass.”
Per Pergram-Capitol Hill
On-cam with House Republican leaders about the sequester.
Tape feeding back shortly
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH):
The House has voted twice to replace the sequester…the president is using our military men and women as a prop for another campaign rally.
* Boehner talks about how the House twice past bills last year to replace the sequester. But those bills don”t apply now since they were approved in a pervious Congress. The senate plans debate on two separate sequester bills this week. But there are no plans for the House to consider another plan before March 1.
We should not have to move a third bill before the Senate gets off their ass.
House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Obama:
He does a roadshow…it is time for him to engage, come down one mile if he really wants to lead.
Rep. Lynn Kenkins (R-KS):
Find me one American family that hasn’t cut important things.
If the Senate acts, I’m sure the House will be prepared to act quickly.
* GOP aides say regardless, the House will not be in session this Friday or over the weekend to potentially extinguish the sequester.
The House has done its job. When is the Senate going to act. I’m anxious to see it.
