Boehner: 'The private sector not doing well'

Associated Press Published: June 8, 2012

Obama opposes extending the current tax rates for the wealthy, favoring a tax increase, but supports extending the current tax rates for middle-income Americans.

Boehner, picking up on Mitt Romney's recent line of attack, said that Obamacare is hurting the economy. "The administration created and managed a superPAC paid for by Pharma and managed and run by Jim Messina out of the West Wing of the White House," Boehner said, citing documents released by the House Energy and Commerce Committee investigators. "This is wrong, and the administration must be held accountable for their actions."

Boehner explained that "emails obtained by the Energy and Commerce Committee show that the White House traded billions of dollars in policy concessions to Pharma for millions of dollars worht of advertising."
