Boehner Challenges Democrats Over Looming Budget Cuts

 
Boehner Challenges Democrats Over Looming Budget Cuts
Posted Thursday, February 14th 2013 @ 12pm

GOP House Speaker John Boehner is challenging Democrats to come up with a workable plan to avert looming budget cuts.  In his weekly news conference, Boehner said he never liked the so-called sequester of deep, automatic spending cuts. 

He said the Republican-led House has twice passed alternatives to replace the sequester.  The Democratic-led Senate did not follow suit.  Without congressional action, the across-the-board cuts are set to trigger on March 1st.  The sequester is rooted in the bipartisan debt ceiling negotiations of 2011.
