Obama to Boehner: No Deal on Debt Limit, Defunding Obamacare
President Barack Obama called House Speaker John Boehner late Friday and reiterated that he would not negotiate with Congress on raising the debt limit, a Boehner representative told Newsmax.
“The president called the speaker this evening to tell him he wouldn’t negotiate with him on the debt limit,” the spokesman said in a statement. “Given the long history of using debt limit increases to achieve bipartisan deficit reduction and economic reforms, the speaker was disappointed, but told the president that the two chambers of Congress will chart the path ahead.
“It was a brief call,” the Boehner spokesman said.
The president also called House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the White House said. (snip)
Obama is still faltering after being punked by Putin over Syria the last few weeks. In an effort to regain his manhood, he’s puffing up and acting tough over the budget bill, and “acting” is the operative word.
If Obama and his shoeshine butt-boys want to try acting tough then let’s show them what tough really is. There’s more than one way to skin a cat, right? He’s a big pussy, so are the libtard Dems . . . pussies all around. Congress should take advantage of this lull while the budget bill Yo-Yo’s to the Senate and back and get busy delivering this lousy excuse for a president’s walking papers.
Fuck Obama! Let’s get the IMPEACHMENT BULLDOZER fired up and not shut it down until his arrogant ass is shoved back where it belongs — Kenya. It’s not like we don’t have a mountain of evidence with which to topple him. He breaks the law and violates our rights on a daily basis, not to mention all of his flubbed foreign policy issues and being the expediter of the murder of four brave Americans in Benghazi. Our U.S. Constitution draws a red line specifically for his type of behavior yet he’s crossed it numerous times and has come back unscathed. Are we going to pretend he hasn’t just like he pretended he never drew a red line with Syria? Dealing with this shit-bird is like eating jello with chop sticks.
He doesn’t give a shit about us and we don’t give a shit about him. This “budget battle” is all about power and politics and has nothing to do with them working for us. While the talking heads in Washington are playing grab ass and holding felching sessions, we get the shaft, and frankly I’ve had enough of their shit. If I must chose between solving the budget conundrum or watching Congress put Obama out of office, I’m going with the latter.
Know this, folks. Until comrade imam Obama is gone and the libtard Dems are eviscerated, this country is going nowhere except straight down the Islamic sharia shit pipe.

“The president telephoned Speaker Boehner and told him again that the full faith and credit of the United States should not and will not be subject to negotiation,” an administration official told Politico in a statement. “The president reiterated that it is the constitutional responsibility of the U.S. Congress to pass the nation’s budget and pay the nation’s bills.”
Obama’s calls came as the House of Representatives voted to temporarily finance the federal government while defunding Obamacare. The 230-189 vote set up a showdown with the Senate and the White House.
House Republicans said on Wednesday they were preparing legislation to raise the government’s $16.7 trillion debt limit.
Leaders have said that they were considering including such options as blocking Obama administration plans to curb coal ash pollution; forcing civil servants to contribute more to their retirement plans; requiring Congress to approve many major regulations; and defunding Obamacare for a year.
Obama has said he wants Congress to send him legislation that simply extends the debt limit and has said that he will not negotiate the matter.
The government is expected to exhaust its borrowing authority by late October. That would threaten a first-ever federal default, which many analysts believe would deal a severe blow to the economy.
Meanwhile, Republican leaders have said they do not want a federal default and have noted that past presidents, including Obama in 2011, have negotiated over earlier bills to extend the debt limit.
In a video released on Thursday, Boehner questioned Obama’s willingness to negotiate with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the chemical weapons issue in Syria but not with Republicans.
“Why is the Obama administration willing to negotiate with Putin on Syria … But not with Congress to address Washington’s spending problem?” the text from the ad asks.
The United States and Russia reached a deal last week in which Syrian President Bashar Assad would give up his nuclear arsenal to be destroyed via international standards. The threat of a U.S. military strike against Syria was staved off by the agreement.
