UPDATED Boehner Takes the Bull by the Horns

Even though its headline is highly misleading (go figure), The Politico is reporting that Minority Leader John Boehner is pushing the Republicans hard to take a moratorium on Pork this year. Stay tuned, but if Boehner does pull it off, it could be huge in the fall:

House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) delivered a stern warning to GOP leaders at their last closed-door meeting: They will never win back the majority until they end their addiction to pet spending projects.

“If we don’t get serious about it, and get serious soon, we’re going nowhere,” he told the GOP lawmakers, according to notes taken by one attendee.
To any Republicans who are still on the fence, it is quite simple: it is our money, not yours. It is a bit disingenuous to be criticizing the Dems for their spending while you are still buttering up your own districts. How about putting your country first for a change? When Hillary unveils her $800 Billion dollars of Socialism this fall--and then she tries to sell the electorate on it by "triangulating" with the President-for-life wannabe husband of hers, using every Saul Alinsky Stalinist tactic that her sleazy campaign can muster, it just make make quite an imposing contrast for a change if the Republicans can actually offer an alternative that the voters will take notice of. This brainchild of Boehner and other Republicans might just be the ticket
