 Obama, Boehner Speak for Ten Minutes On Call
By  Katrina Trinko
September 30, 2013 7:23 PM



President Barack Obama called House speaker John Boehner tonight.

“The president called the speaker this evening to discuss funding for the government and Obamacare,” said Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck in a statement. “The speaker told the president that Obamacare is costing jobs and that American families are being denied basic fairness when big businesses are getting exemptions that they are not. ”

According to Boehner’s office, the two spoke for close to ten minutes.

Obama harshly criticized House Republicans in a speech he made today, saying, “House Republicans continue to tie funding of the government to ideological demands like limiting a woman’s access to contraception or delaying the Affordable Care Act, all to save face after making some impossible promises to the extreme right wing of their party.”

Did Boehner cry and ask for forgiveness?

My guess a deal was made..
GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

Wouldn't it be something if it turned out to be as 'destructive' as Sequestration?  LOL!
