VIDEO: Boehner's "ass" vs. Reid's "posterior"


get off your ass

John Boehner at a press conference:

“We have moved a bill in the House twice. We should not have to move a third bill before the Senate gets off their ass and begins to do something.”

Harry Reid:

“I think he should understand who is sitting on their posterior. We’re doing our best here to pass something. The Speaker is doing nothing to try to pass anything over there.”

“We have something called the Constitution that [requires] you have to start over again every two years. The reason he’s not bringing up something over there is he can’t pass it. He can’t get his caucus to agree on anything.”

The Hill picks it up from there:

So I ask the Republican Speaker, ‘Where’s your bill? You can’t rely on what happened last Congress. Where’s your plan? You can’t rely on what happened last Congress.’

  • They can't "rely on it", because it was passed in the 112th Congress...and now that we are in the 113th Congress, it - the bill(s) previously passed - are now expired.  

    Funny how Boehner talks about this as though he doesn't get that.  He most certainly does.
