House Speaker, John Boehner spoke with Bill Hemmer on Fox’s America’s Newsroom, this morning.
• He compliments the contributions of Republican freshmen, welcomes tea party conservatives to the political arena.
• On the coming budget battle “Armageddon”: Says Republican members will not raise the debt limit unless we take serious steps in the right direction.
• The President’s plan is to “do nothing”, which is totally irresponsible, and we will not be going down that path. Told him to “forget the next election”…
• Describes a “tense moment” with the Vice President, who jumped up during the negotiations with “feigned moral outrage”. Boehner said, “Joe, what the hell was that?”
• On Obama: “Ideologically there are giant differences as to how we view the role of government”.
