By a 332-to-94 vote Thursday night, the House passed a budget deal that – despite taking money from federal workers’ pockets and leaving long-term unemployed in the lurch – was staunchly opposed by major right-wing groups. Among the critics was Tea Party stalwart and Kansas congressman Tim Huelskamp, whom Boehner kicked off the Budget Committee in an alleged purge last year. In an interview before the vote, Huelskamp charged that the deal “doesn’t avoid a government shutdown,” told Salon he hears rumors Boehner’s retiring, and skewered Paul Ryan’s response to right-wing attacks on the deal he brokered.

One thing stated as the Boner tries to distance himself from his actions of the last 5 years "IS" actually true = It was fringe elements that pushed these policies.

But he stops short of the full monty - as he does not continue to say that those fringe elements were/are funded by the very wealthy and wallstreet and various other corp(se)oRATions ( that for all intents and purposes these fringe groups "ARE" the very wealthy and wallstreet and various other corp(se)oRATions ) - and that he was fully on board until he saw that the majority of the people saw through the bullshit.

Ummmm so why Mr. Boner if you are repudiating small minority fringe groups - WHY DID THEY EVEN HAVE ANY PULL TO GET YOU TO STONEWALL FOR THEM THESE LAST 5 YEARS ???? What ever happened to representing the majority? The People?

I know and You know - they are just going back to their lame bag of tricks. It's their fault not mine - they did it I'm innocent. Same old lame old BS. Hopefully this time the public will boot em in the balls for trying to claim innocence.
