John Boehner Wants To Know Why We Have To Fight About Everything

House Speaker John Boehner was on the floor yesterday speaking out for student loan interest rates. “While we don’t yet have the solution to the long-term solution to this problem, the Chairman is continuing to work on it, we believe that we shouldn’t put students at risk and that we ought to make sure that their interest rates don’t go up. So we developed the short-term policy to solve this problem for the next year while the committee has time to look at a long-term solution to this problem. Why do people in– why do people insist that we have to have a political fight on something where there is no fight? There is absolutely no fight. People want to politicize this because it’s an election year, but my God, do we have to fight about everything?” Boehner said. “And now, now we are going to have a fight over women’s health. Give me a break. You know, this is the latest plank in the so-called war on women. Entirely created, entirely created by my colleagues across the aisle for political gain.” According to Boehner, “the House “ignored a veto threat” and passed a measure to stop new student loan rates from doubling this summer. The bill pays for extending current rates by cutting a slush fund the president himself proposed cutting from ObamaCare — a law that’s making it harder for small businesses to hire new workers, including recent college graduates.” President Obama says he still plans on vetoing the bill.
