Boehner’s Office To White House: Present A Plan That Can Pass Congress

December 3, 2012 12:36 p.m.

House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) office offered a rejoinder to the White House’s rejection of its fiscal cliff counter-proposal, inviting President Obama to come up with a plan that can pass Congress.

“Republicans have once again offered a responsible, balanced plan to avoid the fiscal cliff, and the White House has once again demonstrated how unreasonable it has become,” Boehner’s spokesman Brendan Buck said in a statement emailed to TPM. “If the President is rejecting this middle ground offer, it is now his obligation to present a plan that can pass both chambers of Congress.”
