WASHINGTON, DC — With debate flaring up in the nation’s capitol, Congressional Republicans believe they have come to a fair compromise in order to fund the government, raise the debt ceiling, as well as fully implement the Affordable Care Act.
Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is backing an idea put forth by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Rep. Steve King (R-IA), and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), as well as backed by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the Senate.
The idea is a compromise that in order to fully fund the government, raise the debt ceiling, as well as fully fund and implement Obamacare they are asking President Obama to step down from office.
“We believe it’s a simple step to save the nation,” said Rep. Steve King in an exclusive interview with Free Wood Post. “All the president needs to do is step down. It will save the nation from impending doom, and if he doesn’t want to be blamed for a complete government shutdown and default on our debts he will do as we ask. Besides we will be giving him Obamacare. We feel it really is a more than fair compromise. And yes, we know Joe Biden will then be president for the next couple years, but let’s be real here… he’s a lot less threatening than President Obama. I mean.. it’s Joe.”
President Obama has failed to acknowledge this compromise as an even remote possibility, and when Free Wood Post tried to reach the White House for comment, we got laughter as a response to our question.
