It is absolutely true. If you have evidence it isn't, post it, otherwise you're blowing smoke. I've already established hard evidence for those who have respect for facts as opposed to the propaganda you seem to favor. To repeat, the CR - the passing of which is what the current stalemate is about (with me so far? this isn't hard) - which the senate has already passed and which Obama has pledged to sign takes as it's total a number which Boehner requested and said he could pass in the House. It is not Reid or the president's number (still with me?) which was significantly higher, nor is it even the sequester number which was about $80 billion more (got that? tell me when you have a question, OK). That is known as a compromise which was the result of a negotiation. Boehner doesn't deny this. Why do you? OK, surely you can understand that, but if you need help, let me know.
