Intriguing is a classy way to put it. Fox News’ Harris Faulkner retweeted this tweet from Fox News contributor Richard Grenell.

Hmm. You see, the House voted late Saturday night to delay Obamacare and avert a shutdown. The Senate? It can’t be bothered today.

Speaker Boehner took them to task.

Yep. Boehner’s full statement:

WASHINGTON, DC — House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement after receiving word that the Democratic leaders of the U.S. Senate may wait until as late as Monday afternoon to act on House-passed legislation that would prevent a government shutdown:

“The House worked late into the night Saturday to prevent a government shutdown, and the Senate now must move quickly, today, to do the same.

“If the Senate stalls until Monday afternoon instead of working today, it would be an act of breathtaking arrogance by the Senate Democratic leadership.  They will be deliberately bringing the nation to the brink of a government shutdown for the sake of raising taxes on seniors’ pacemakers and children’s hearing aids and plowing ahead with the train wreck that is the president’s health care law.  The American people will not stand for it.

“I call on the Democratic leaders of the Senate to act today on the measure passed by the House last night, and urge senators on both sides of the aisle to listen to the American people, who do not want a government shutdown and do not want the president’s health care law.”



Well, perhaps some are taking a page from Nancy Pelosi’s book. She couldn’t be bothered attending the House vote last night. She posted a sneering tweet Sunday morning instead.

And these Twitter users sum it all up:

Bingo! Own it, Democrats.
