Conservative Group Slams Spineless Republican Leadership for Daily Fiscal Cliff Cave

The conservative groups Club for Growth and Heritage Action on Monday lashed out over reported concessions by Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in secret budget negotiations with President Obama.

Boehner has reportedly offered to concede on raising some tax rates and is floating a one-year debt-ceiling extension in exchange for spending cuts.

“The proposal, as reported, represents a clear path toward surrender on conservative principles. Rather than fighting for real reforms that would actually solve the problem, GOP negotiators seem intent on negotiating with themselves in hopes of striking a grand bargain that will ultimately fail, as so many others have before,” said Dan Holler of Heritage Action.

“First Speaker Boehner offered to raise tax rates after promising not to, and now he’s offering to raise the debt ceiling. Raising tax rates is anti-growth and raising the debt ceiling is pro-government growth – and this is the Republican position?” Club for Growth President Chris Chocola said in a separate statement.
