    GOP tried to sneak agenda

    Obama on live mic:

    I remember seeing Boehner seething after that first night of negotiations, when he appeared side by side with Reid. Perhaps this was the reason?

    "I said, 'You want to repeal health care? Go at it. We'll have that debate. You're not going to be able to do that by nickel-and-diming me in the budget. You think we're stupid?'" recalled the president of his closed-door negotiations on the bill to fund the federal government until September.

    On HCR

    Mr. Obama said he told House Speaker John Boehner and members of his staff that he'd spent a year and a half getting the sweeping health care legislation passed -- paying "significant political costs" along the way -- and wouldn't let them undo it in a six-month spending bill.
    •  Accountants just tell the client (0+ / 0-)

      whether the figures add up.  Ryan presuming to represent himself as an accountant is being disingenuous, taking on tasks that aren't in his job description.  As a member of Congress he's supposed to serve as the steward of our nation's assets and resources.  Stewardship implies more than counting the silver and the tablecloths.
