House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) delivered a one-minute speech regarding Washington Democrats' continued failure to produce a budget, which economists and the American people know is costing our country jobs. During his remarks, Boehner noted that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), the top Republican on the House Budget Committee, has a proposal up on AmericaSpeakingOut.com to cut spending now in order to create jobs and boost our economy. Rep. Ryan's idea can be voted on and debated here.

"The House is two months late in passing a budget. In that time, unemployment has remained at near 10 percent and the national debt has now exceeded $13 trillion. Last week, I gave the President a letter signed by more than 100 top economists from around the country that urges both parties to cut spending now in order to create jobs and to boost our economy. Less spending, more jobs, it really is just that simple. But the President responded Saturday night with a letter asking for another $50 billion in 'stimulus' bailout money. Without specifying where this money would come from, the President asked us to be patient with his Administration for its continuing job-killing spending spree. Now this money comes from our kids and grandkids who, this year, are going to get stuck with 43 cents out of every dollar the federal government spends; the debt's going to be laid on them.

"The American people are shouting at the top of their lungs, 'Stop, and stop now!' They're making their voices heard through YouCut, where more than 830,000 votes have already been cast to cut spending. And today, on AmericaSpeakingOut.com, Paul Ryan has posted a plan to cut spending now and reduce the budget deficit. You can visit AmericaSpeakingOut.com right now, and check out these ideas and vote on them in order to cut spending quickly."
