House Speaker John Boehner got a bit unplugged during his weekly press conference today, pointedly telling the Senate to “get off their ass and do something” to find a way to avert the sequester.
Boehner pushed a familiar refrain during a nearly 10-minute press conference: The House has twice passed legislation to replace the sequester’s spending cuts. Now, the Senate must act.
“We should not have to move a third bill before the Senate gets off their ass and begins to do something,” Boehner said.
“The House has done its job,” Boehner added.
