Boehner Statement on the White House & Democrats’ “Chicago-Style Politics” -- Oct 22, 2009
WASHINGTON, D.C. – At his weekly press briefing today, House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) addressed the White House and congressional Democrats’ efforts to demonize their political opponents because they are losing the debate over public policy:
“The White House and congressional Democrats know that their liberal special-interest agenda is not very popular. And now they are following a familiar pattern: when you can’t win an argument based on the facts, launch vicious political attacks. This Chicago-style politics is shutting the American people out and demonizing their opponents.
“They are writing the health care bill in secret, even though the President called for all of this to be out on an open table and have C-SPAN cameras in the room. Instead, Democrats are targeting those who don’t fall immediately in line – the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, doctors, Fox News. The Administration promised during the campaign that they were going to usher in an era of ‘post-partisanship’ in here in Washington, but what they are doing is flat-out despicable.”
