Phil: Compare Pence's candor with John Boehner's disingenuousness. This is from the statement Boehner issued late last night.
"I've said since January during my run for Majority Leader that that we as Republicans must return to the spirit of '94 and its focus on reform. The American people strongly supported our ideas and agenda in 1994, and they still do. We made progress this year by instituting greater fiscal discipline, rejecting some $45 billion in wasteful Democrat spending, enacting comprehensive earmark reform, and continuing to provide tax relief, but clearly we must do more and we must do better.
That's right, blame the Democrats for wasteful spending under the Republicans' watch.
