Boehner Urges Obama to Extend Bush Tax Cuts

Tuesday, 24 Aug 2010 09:06 AM


In a speech on jobs and the economy, House Republican leader John Boehner is urging President Barack Obama to support an extension of tax cuts and to fire key economic advisers.

The text was released in advance before the lawmaker from southern Ohio spoke to the City Club of Cleveland on Tuesday. In his prepared remarks, Boehner says Obama needs to act immediately on several fronts to break what the Republican describes as "ongoing economic uncertainty."

Boehner says the president should work with the GOP to renew soon-to-expire tax cuts enacted under President George W. Bush. The lawmaker also calls on Obama to propose aggressive spending cuts and seek the resignations of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and other members of his economic team.
