Sequester: Boehner Unaware Of Video Archives? Hypocrite And Liar.

John Stevenson writes.....

This man is third in ascendancy to the Presidency of the United States of America.

How’s this for hypocrisy? 

Listen to U.S. House Speaker Boehner (R-OH) on the sequester:

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed published Tuesday evening, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) blamed President Obama for the nearly $1.2 trillion in across-the-board spending cuts set to go into effect next month, labeling the looming cuts as “the president’s sequester.”

“Most Americans are just hearing about this Washington creation for the first time: the sequester,” Boehner writes. “What they might not realize from Mr. Obama’s statements is that it is a product of the president’s own failed leadership.”
Boehner continues, 
“There is nothing wrong with cutting spending that much — we should be cutting even more — but the sequester is an ugly and dangerous way to do it.”
Huffington Post

The sequester stems from the Budget Control Act of 2011, which mandated the cuts if a congressional “super committee” failed to reach an agreement on how to reduce the deficit.


Now, the truth:

When the Budget Control Act of 2011 was passed in the House of Representatives, 218 Republicans voted for it; zero (that’s right, no Democrats) voted for it. Boehner bragged then that, “I got 98% of what I wanted.” Now he calls it “the president’s sequester”. 

More on Boehner and is failing strategy....

Man, if liars get degrees he has a doctorate in lying.
