John Boehner Challenges Obama to Negotiate on Debt Limit: “Never been a President that Did Not Negotiate over Debt Limit. Never. Not Once” – Video 10/8/13
John Boehner is ready to “have a conversation” with President Barack Obama – who continues to say, “I will not negotiate.” Boehner said no President in American History has refused to negotiate over the Debt Limit.
Boehner is right. It is insane to think Republicans should just write a blank check to Barack Obama with no strings attached. The House is given the power of the purse by the U.S. Constitution. It is not only their right – it is their duty to control the spending of the Federal Government.
