Obama on Debt Negotiations Boehner Left Him at the Altar… Again

Posted on

I’m really getting tired of the fact that we are not getting anywhere with these debt negotiations. Moments ago the story broke that Speaker Boehner walked away from debt talks with President Obama. Right now Obama is in a press conference telling us all about it. I want to hear from Boehner about why he walked away.  It’s time for the leaders to grow up and get things done.

There is now an 11:00 meeting tomorrow morning with Pelosi, Reid, McConnell, and Boehner so we’ll see what happens. They haven’t come up with an answer this far what makes Obama think they’ll have an answer in the morning?

I support the GOP but Boehner is starting to upset me. At some point both sides have to compromise a LOT to get this fixed.

Obama said at minimum we need to raise the debt ceiling. That tells me he is willing to just raise the debt ceiling? He doesn’t want to end up right where we are now in just a few months. If we only raise the debt ceiling that’s exactly what is going to happen!

Anyway I’m rambling. I’m going to finish listening to the press conference and then maybe I’ll post again. I’m just irritated with both sides of Congress at this point.
