Boehner: Sequester will stay until Obama offers smarter cuts

Posted: 8/1/2013 | Views: 7658

Speaker John A. Boehner came before the mics on Thursday, and he made one thing clear: The sequester is here to stay until the White House gets serious about spending cuts.

“Sequestration is going to remain in effect until the president agrees to cuts and reforms that will allow us to remove it,” the Ohio Republican said to reporters in his weekly news conference. “The president insisted on the sequester none of us wanted, none of us like it, there are smarter ways to cut spending. The House has moved twice over the last year and a half to replace the sequester, and we saw no action in the United States Senate.

Boehner’s remarks came a day after GOP leadership made the startling decision to pull from the floor, mid-consideration, an appropriations bill funding transportation and housing programs. Boehner on Thursday morning reiterated the official party line, that the choice was because of scheduling concerns, not concerns that there weren’t enough Republican votes to bring the measure over the finish line.
