In an interview that aired yesterday on ABC’s This Week, Speaker John Boehner talked with guest host Martha Raddatz about how the GOP’s balanced budget, and the need to solve Washington’s spending problem to create jobs, increase wages and expand opportunity in America.
KEY QUOTE: "Our balanced budget means more economic security for workers and parents, a more secure retirement for the elderly and more opportunities for younger workers... I don’t underestimate the difficulty of this task, especially given that Senate Democrats have no interest in balancing the budget. But presidential leadership is really what’s needed."
Speaker Boehner appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday to talk about replacing the president’s sequester with smarter cuts, and the need for reform to create a fairer, simpler tax code that helps bring home jobs that have been driven overseas in recent years. Below are several key excerpts.
