Urgent: Boehner: The President does deserve some credit for incremental enttitlement informs
Per Pergram-Capitol Hill
On-cam with House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and other GOP leaders on the budget, guns, etl al.
Fed back live.
Every family has to balance it’s budget, Washington should as well.
President does deserve some credit for incremental enttitlement informs
Lets find the common ground and move on then.
House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA):
There are some things other than the tax increases that we can agree on.
Disagreements we have in this town are well published and well known. But lets set aside differences, most people do that in their daily lives and expect nothing less from us.
House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA):
This is the moment, opportunity, path of American people to put a balance on the budget
House Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA):
As we remember Margaret Thatcher, I’d like to share a quote: “you may have to fight a battle more than once to win it”. A battle for America’s future, policies that will make it strong.
House GOP Conference Vice Chair Lynn Jenkins (R-KS):
Presidents budget appears to be a status quo budget, in stark contrast to republican vision we laid out a few weeks ago
Rep. Luke Messer (R-IN):
Encouraged to see president mentions entitlement reform but discouraged its locked into tax increases
Simple math, if you’re not for reforming Medicare and Social Security than you’re looking for them to fail.
Boehner on guns:
Any bill that passes the Senate, well hear it but in the meantime were going to continue to have hearings (on gun control) but I’m waiting to see what senate passes.
The sequester will stay in place until we have cuts and reforms that put us on a path to balance in 10 years.
