Boehner Ad Attacks Obama for Negotiating With Putin, but Not Congress

By    |   Thursday, 19 Sep 2013 12:23 PM

House Speaker John Boehner criticized President Barack Obama Thursday for negotiating with Russia over Syria but refusing to strike a deal with Congress over the debt ceiling. The attack came in an Internet video.

"The Obama administration on working with Congress to address the debt and deficit," the ad reads. Then it shows the president and top White House officials saying they won't negotiate with Republicans on the debt ceiling.

Story continues below video.



"The Obama administration on working with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin on Syria,” the ad continues before showing the president and his team talking about negotiations with Russia over Syria's chemical weapons.

"Why is the Obama administration willing to negotiate with Putin on Syria, but not with Congress to address Washington's spending problem?" it asks.

House Republican leaders want to add various provisions, including a one-year delay in the Affordable Care Act, to a bill that would raise the nation's debt ceiling. But the president has insisted on a bill raising the nation's borrowing limit that is free of amendments.

The debt limit must be raised by mid-October or the government will be unable to pay its bills, according to the Treasury Department.
