Boehner On Stimulus: "Oh My God"

After receiving the House Democrats' draft for the economic stimulus bill today, House Minority Leader John Boehner reacted in a way that does not signal a quick passage in the house.

ABC has the story:


"There was no Republican input at all involved in what House Democrats outlined today," Boehner, R-Ohio, said at a news conference at the Capitol. "I just took a moment to look over the draft from Chairman [David] Obey and the draft or outline from Chairman [Charlie] Rangel. Oh, my God.

"I just can't tell you how shocked I am at what we're seeing. You know it's clear that they're moving on this path along the flawed notion that we can borrow and spend our way back to prosperity."
