Rep. Gohmert: Boehner and McConnell Are Bad Negotiators | With a little over a month to go until the U.S. hits the drop dead date on the debt ceiling, negotiations led by Vice President Biden are heating up, but one Tea Party congressman has little faith in his party’s leadership. On World Net Daily’s radio show yesterday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said he worried about his party’s leadership “caving” the way they did last year, saying negotiations led by House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have not gone “very well, at all”:
I’m very concerned that our House leadership will do what was done on the CR and end up caving, and we end up instead of having $100 billion in savings we have $352 million. […] So I’m very concerned. I like John Boehner, I like Mitch McConnell, but with them leading, our negotiations have not been able to do very well, at all.
