John Boehner quotes
His ideas, when you can get to them, are frankly more in the direction that I would want the country to go to than Hillary Clinton.
What more could be said in this election cycle than has already been said? It couldn't be any worse, could it?
Arnold Palmer democratized golf, made us think that we, too, could go out and play.
Governing isn't about promising the impossible. You can find common ground with the other side without compromising your beliefs.
President Reagan was famous for his smile, and Nancy was usually the reason he was smiling. During her husband's presidency and the difficult years that followed, Nancy Reagan was a rock of strength and unconditional love, and a leader in her own right on matters close to her heart. May they now both rest in peace in God's loving arms, reunited for eternity.
Real change takes time… and remember you can't do a big job alone, especially this one.
Members of Congress will ask much tougher questions this afternoon when we meet with the president's team, and because a bad deal threatens the security of the American people, we're going to do everything possible to stop it.
There are four committees that are investigating Benghazi. I see no reason to break up all the work that's been done and to take months and months and months to create some select committee.
After years of fiscal and economic mismanagement, the president has offered perhaps his most irresponsible budget yet.
In the coming weeks, Republicans will produce a responsible budget that balances, promotes opportunity, reforms our tax code, saves our critical safety net programs, and places a priority on creating jobs, not more government.
It is time for leadership. It is time for these negotiations and this conversation to begin and I would hope that the president would look at this as an opportunity and a good faith effort on our part to move halfway, halfway to what he has demanded in order to have these conversations begin.
All we're asking for is to sit down and have a discussion and to bring fairness – reopen the government – and bring fairness to the American people under Obamacare.
The President reiterated one more time tonight, that he will not negotiate. All we are asking for here is a discussion and fairness for the American people under Obamacare. I wish, I would hope the President and our Democrat colleagues in the Senate, would listen to the American people and sit down and have a serious discussion about resolving these differences.
They also rejected our call to sit down and resolve our differences under the Constitution which makes it clear that if the two Houses disagree we should sit down and discuss and try to resolve those matters.
The Senate has continued to reject our offers. But under the Constitution there is a way to resolve this process and that is to go to conference and talk through your differences. And I would hope that the Senate would accept our offer to go to conference and discuss this so we can resolve this for the American people.
The House is going to move a continuing resolution next week to fund the government past March 27. And I'm hopeful that we won't have to deal with the threat of a government shutdown while we're dealing with the sequester at the same time. The House will act next week and I hope the Senate will follow suit.
For sixteen months the President has been traveling all over the country holding rallies instead of sitting down with Senate leaders in order to try and forge an agreement over there in order to move a bill.
We see a situation where – because of the political divide in the country, because of the divide here in Washington – trying to bridge these differences has been difficult: if it were easy, I guarantee you this would have been done decades before.
This is an opportunity for the president to lead. This is his moment to engage the Congress and work towards a solution that that can pass both chambers. I think we both understand that trying to find a way to avert a fiscal cliff is important for our country.
I do think that what has gone on is very embarrassing, and I think it's clear there are investigations going on, both at the Pentagon and at the Secret Service. And I hope they get to the bottom of it quickly.
We will ask the House and Senate to approve this agreement by unanimous consent before Christmas. Middle class families and small businesses are struggling and they are making sacrifices, and I think this agreement will help our economy.
The bill's not perfect. I've never said it was perfect. Nobody in my caucus believes it's perfect. But what this bill reflects is a sincere, honest effort to end this crisis in a bipartisan way, to send it to the Senate where it can receive action.
I think it would be irresponsible for the president to veto such legislation because it is a common sense plan and it will help us avoid default. It's time to get serious about solving America's problems and I believe our plan is a good step in the right direction.
The solution of this crisis is not complicated: if you are spending more money than you are taking in, you need to spend less of it. There is no symptom of big government more menacing than our debt. Break its grip and we begin to liberate our economy and our future.
Its not just what the American people are demanding, it is what they are expecting from us.
I've spent my whole life chasing the American dream.
For far too long, Washington has been doing what's best for Washington, not what's best for the American people. And tonight this is starting to change. We must remember: it's the president who sets the agenda for a government. And the American people have sent him an unmistakable message, and this message is 'change cours.
That word isn't 'enemies', it's 'patriot.
I think it provides a chilling effect on all our intelligence officers around the world, I think that's unfortunate. Secondly, I think it only presents a small piece of a bigger story that should be released.
