Senate Democrats

A Polite Reminder for Speaker Boehner

FYI –

At a news conference today, Speaker Boehner sought to claim that Democrats had failed to offer a deficit reduction proposal:

“There’s been exactly one proposal on the table, in the committee, and that came from the six Republican members,’ Boehner said, dismissing Murray’s counter offer as merely one from members’ ‘individual’ discussions. ‘It is very clear to me there has not been one Democrat position. Not one,’ he added.”  [Roll Call, 11/17/11]

Huh?

Well, there was this …

… and this …

… and oh yes, this …

… and, way back at the start of the supercommittee process, there was this …

Note to Speaker Boehner: just because Republicans keep rejecting every balanced offer coming from Democrats doesn’t mean they never existed.
