Speaker Boehner Talks “No Budget, No Pay,” Balanced Budget With Laura Ingraham | Speaker.gov

In an interview with Laura Ingraham today, Speaker John Boehner highlighted today’s vote on the No Budget, No Pay Act, said the House will outline a plan to balance the budget within 10 years, and discussed the importance of holding the Obama administration accountable for its response to the terrorist attack in Benghazi. Here are several key excerpts:

Boehner on “No Budget, No Pay”:

“Our bill today extends the debt limit for an additional 90 days, and it makes it very clear to the Senate and to the House that you pass a budget or you don’t get paid. The House is going to do its job; it’s time for the Senate to do their job. … Every hardworking taxpayer knows that they’ve got to do a budget. And every hardworking taxpayer expects Washington to do a budget as well, and if they don’t, why pay them?”

Boehner on Balancing the Budget in 10 Years:

“The House is going to have a plan in our budget to balance the budget over the next 10 years. … House Republicans are committed to do everything we can to get spending under control.”

Boehner on the Terrorist Attack in Libya:

“There are facts out there that make it clear that [the Obama administration] knew this was a terrorist attack and yet they went on for weeks trying to claim that it wasn’t. … We are bound and determined to get to the bottom of who knew what and when, and why the administration continued to deny that this was in fact a terrorist attack. And the fact that they denied these legitimate requests for additional security in Libya.”
