Boehner Confronts Obama On Alleged Lack Of GOP Jobs Plan


House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) confronted President Barack Obama in a phone call over the assertions that were made by the President about the lack of a GOP jobs plan, The Hill reported.

Obama had called Boehner to congratulate the Representative on the passage of three trade agreements that had been made, but the conversation quickly turned to the assertions that were made by the President, according to the news outlet.

Boehner responded to Obama’s claim that was made earlier this week.

“What we haven’t seen is a similar willingness on their part to try to get something done,” Obama had claimed in an address.

The Hill reported that Boehner made it very clear to the President that the GOP had outlined aspects of the current jobs plan that they were willing to work with.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Obama challenged Boehner following the killing of his Administration’s plan in the Senate on Wednesday. The Speaker responded by saying that they were willing to consider fiscally responsible measures moving forward.
