(by Norvell Rose, WCJ) -- The Republican-controlled House of Representatives — driven forward by arm-twisting, deal-making Speaker John Boehner — narrowly passed a massive government spending bill late Thursday and sent the measure to the Senate for final approval.
By a vote of 219-206, the House okayed the $1.1 trillion measure after Boehner and company cobbled together enough votes — Republican and Democrat — to avoid a possible government shutdown with only hours to spare.
A number of conservative Republicans are angry with Speaker Boehner, who they feel essentially broke trust with the voters by giving the president and his Democrat allies what they need to keep ObamaCare going and to move forward with Obama’s executive actions on amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants.
Among those thoroughly ticked off at Boehner is Fox News host Sean Hannity. On his show Thursday, Hannity blasted Boehner, saying that he is “everything that is wrong with Washington.”
Hannity went on to say that Boehner should not be Speaker of the House and “should be replaced.”
By clicking on the video above, you can see why the fired-up Fox News host charged that John Boehner “Grubered” conservatives by turning off the tough talk and turning on them after the midterm elections.
