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.

Boehner:
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.

Boehner:
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.

Boehner:
The House has done its job. When is the Senate going to act. I’m anxious to see it.
