Speaker Boehner discussed GOP efforts to replace the president’s sequester, and emphasized the need for pro-growth tax reform that lowers rates to help grow the economy and create jobs.


Speaker Boehner highlighted GOP efforts to cut spending and protect Americans from President Obama’s fiscal cliff tax hikes.


The House of Representatives will vote today on two measures to shield families and small businesses from the looming “fiscal cliff” by cutting spending and protecting millions from tax hikes.

Speaker Boehner took the White House today to task for failing to put forth a balanced approach to resolve the fiscal cliff...


For nearly two years, Speaker Boehner has had one simple principle on the debt limit, “the Boehner Principle”: any debt limit increase must be accompanied by spending cuts and reforms of a greater amount.  This rule is the best – and maybe the only – mechanism to bring real spending cuts to Washington. In negotiations to avoid the fiscal cliff, President Obama has asked for the authority to increase the debt limit whenever he wants, however high he wants – with no spending cuts. That is never going to happen.

At a press conference today, Speaker Boehner underscored the need for serious spending cuts to avert the fiscal cliff, begin addressing our staggering debt, and support economic growth.


In a statement yesterday, Speaker Boehner called for action to avert the fiscal cliff that would destroy 700,000 jobs, and move toward “a fairer, simpler, cleaner tax code” and entitlement reforms to boost economic growth and help address America’s skyrocketing debt.

In remarks today on averting the president’s “fiscal cliff,” Speaker John Boehner cited the bipartisan Tax Reform Act of 1986 as a model for how Republicans and Democrats can work together to pave the way for long-term economic growth, help bring jobs home, and rein in our national debt.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and other proponents of raising taxes on small businesses are either intentionally misleading the American people -- or they’re calling for a $5 trillion increase.

Two years later, the GOP has kept its Pledge – but the fight continues in Democratic-controlled Washington.
