Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. BOEHNER. Mr. Speaker, I hear my colleagues on the other side of the aisle complaining about the President's sequester. It is the President that insisted that this sequester be part of the Budget Control Act a year and a half ago. It is the President who has known for 16 months that the sequester was going to happen.

This is why the House acted twice--twice--over the last 300 days to replace the sequester. There are better and smarter ways to cut spending. But the President is out doing his campaign event nonstop when he could be sitting down with Senate leaders to actually act.

The House has acted twice. It's time for the President to put his plan on the table, and it's time for Senate Democrats to put their plan on the table to avert the sequester that's due to go into effect on Friday.
