Here's a reposte to Boehner's "Blank check" comment

Speaker Boehner's response to President Obama's speech

President Obama came to Congress in January and requested business as usual — yet another routine increase in the national debt limit — we in the House said ‘not so fast.’ Here was the president, asking for the largest debt increase in American history, on the heels of the largest spending binge in American history.

Here’s what we got for that spending binge: a massive health care bill that most Americans never asked for. A ‘stimulus’ bill that was more effective in producing material for late-night comedians than it was in producing jobs. And a national debt that has gotten so out of hand it has sparked a crisis without precedent in my lifetime or yours.

Boehner stuck his foot, ankle leg and thigh in his mouth when he said: "on the heels of the largest spending binge in American history."    It was his  Republican Binge!  Look at the figures, who is responsible here?  Obama, or the Republicans 8 year spending binge brought to you by Bush, McConnell and Boehner himself.  Obama's biggest "splurge" has been the recovery act, 27 days after he took office to save our country from another depression.

Finally, Boehner himself says the stimulus didn't create any jobs.  I'm sick of Republicans saying it didn't create any jobs, shall we re-post all the pictures of Republicans at new projects taking credit for jobs they voted against?  114 lawmakers block recovery while taking credit for its success. 
Speaker Boehner tell us Where are the jobs?  Oh yeah, the republicans have passed 0 job bills since they gained control of the senate.  20 million Americans out of work and Boehner is talking about history, incorrect history and a made up crisis to divert attention from jobs.
