House Speaker John Boehner, on Wednesday blasted President Barack Obama for the $1.2 trillion looming spending cuts, saying the sequester due to begin next week are “a product of the president’s own failed leadership.”
Unless the president and Congressional l Republicans reach a compromise budget deal, the sequester will slash defense and domestic spending.
At a White House event on Tuesday, Obama, surrounded by firefighters and other first responders, blamed the GOP lawmakers for the impending loss of jobs for emergency workers and others.
But in a scathing Wall Street Journal op-ed, Boehner pointed the finger firmly at the president as being responsible for getting the country “in this mess.”
“During the summer of 2011, as Washington worked toward a plan to reduce the deficit to allow for an increase in the federal debt limit, President Obama and I very nearly came to a historic agreement,” writes Boehner. “Unfortunately, our deal fell apart at the last minute when the president demanded an extra $400 billion in new tax revenue —50% more than we had shaken hands on just days before. “
