Boehner Cuts

Tea party organizers don't believe that Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner is willing to cut spending:
Boehner, in a May 9 speech in New York, did insist that any increase to the debt limit include "cuts in trillions." But conservatives expect the Republicans will not uphold his demand.
The "I pay enough taxes" party simply doesn't think that John Boehner is good on his word to cut spending from the federal budget. I wonder if they got that idea from the CBO report this week that the Republican budget increased spending this year. After they promised to cut $100 billion from federal spending this year.

Enter into the American political lexicon "Boehner cuts", a noun meaning "rhetorical cuts in spending that increase actual spending."
