“If we really are serious about getting the American people back to work, removing the clouds of uncertainty are important. We — you look at the end of the year, we’re looking at the largest tax increase in America history on January the 1st. We’re looking at big cuts to our Department of Defense that are going to affect our ability to keep Americans safe. And we’re looking at an increase in the debt limit. Why do we want to wait and rush this through at the end of the year after the election?” – Speaker Boehner, ABC, 5/20
“I challenge the speaker right now to bring the middle-income tax cuts to the floor.” – Democratic Leader Pelosi, ABC, 5/20
Hop to it, Speaker Boehner.
