U.S. Republican House Speaker John Boehner said on Wednesday he welcomes a plan to extend U.S. highway funding until May 31, 2015, from House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp and hopes to see it pass the House of Representatives in the next two weeks.

"I think Chairman Camp and the members of the Ways and Means Committee have a really solid bill to help pay for the shortfall, if you will, in the Highway Trust Fund for the next eight or nine months," Boehner told reporters.

Camp's $10.9 billion plan would be paid for with some fund transfers and revenue-raising measures, including $6.5 billion in new revenue from "pension smoothing," an accounting move that allows companies to delay contributions to employee pension plans. This boosts short-term corporate profits, producing more tax revenue collected by the U.S. Treasury.
Bold mine

In other words . . ' We do not want to raise taxes so we'll just take money away from the workers retirement plans. . '

It is clearly time to sweep these bozo's out of office! !

Boehner has historically received >60% of the vote in his district. He isn't going anywhere.

That's the problem with Congress, as a whole, they are woefully inept and we all know it. The reason it won't change is because most of us like our Representative.

I would love to see things shake up, but I want Pat Tiberi to keep representing OH12

True . . I wonder if the extreme distaste for congress will not change some of that????

Poor ol' Boehner is not a bad guy . . he has his hands full trying to herd the snakes in the House . . trying to appease the extremists makes him look a bit looney from time to time, but I agree . . it's not likely to result in a "Cantorizing" event
