Boehner: Obama State of the Union proposals sound 'pathetic'
January 22nd, 2012
House Speaker John Boehner on Sunday insisted that the next year will be spent on policy, not politics, but said it's "pathetic" if President Obama tries to offer the "same old" ideas at Tuesday's State of the Union that he's been offering in the past three years.
The speaker, appearing on "Fox News Sunday," said those policies haven't helped the economy.
"They made it worse," he said. "And if that's what the president is going to talk about Tuesday night, I think it's pathetic. I think it's time for the president to listen to his own jobs council. It's time to go in a new direction."
