Boehner: Time to Stop Playing ‘Political Games’ With the Tax Cut Bill

Posted on Feb 15, 2012

Boehner let fly with this little rhetorical gem Wednesday, as congressional approval ratings plummeted to 10 percent.  —KA

You can tell it’s an election year, can’t you? Nice
going, Boner. How does finally passing a bill which was
supported by Democrats all along prove that they were
the ones who were using it as a political issue?
