“[I]f there’s any blame to be placed, it’s squarely on his shoulders”
“Let’s do something that’s real unusual in this town. Let’s talk about accountability. I don’t care whoever you are. The position the speaker’s in right now—if there’s any blame to be placed, it’s squarely on his shoulders,” said Rep. Jeff Landry (R-La.).
“Everything that they’ve negotiated over the last two years that he’s been in Congress has been at his beck and call, what he wanted. The Budget Reconciliation Act was the deal he wanted. The budget was what he wanted. The fight that we had over spending was what he wanted,” Landry said…
“There’s no deal on the table from either side that is a good deal for the American people. Not one deal,” said Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) said Wednesday at a press conference with several House conservatives.
“Because the debt is going to increase whether it’s Speaker Boehner’s proposal or the resident’s proposal, debt is going to increase by 8 or 9 trillion over the next 10 years, and taxes are going to go up,” Amash added.
