Teabaggers to Attack Boehner For Supporting Obama

Boehner vows to support Obama on Ukraine

 

WASHINGTON — House Speaker John Boehner vowed today to support President Barack Obama in this “ very difficult situation” against Russian President Vladimir Putin just hours before the House approved financial support for the new Ukraine government.

At a news conference on Capitol Hill, Boehner, R-West Chester, said House Republicans “remain committed to working with the administration’’ to provide Obama with “as many tools as needed to put President Putin in check.”

“You’ve heard me call President Putin a thug; that’s because he is,’’ Boehner said. “He’s counting on the United States to sit back and watch him do and take whatever he wants,” referring to Putin sending thousands of Russian troops into Crimea, a peninsula that is part of Ukraine.

By a vote of 385-to-23, the House agreed to $1 billion in loan guarantees to the financially-troubled Ukraine government, which means the U.S. would guarantee the loans if Ukraine cannot pay them back.

“I expect you’ll see quick action in the Senate on that issue as well,’’ Boehner said. “We’re continuing to work on a package of sanctions with our counterparts in the Senate and frankly with the White House.

Among Ohio lawmakers, Republicans Pat Tiberi of Genoa Township, Steve Stivers of Upper Arlington, Bill Johnson of Marietta, Jim Jordan of Urbana, Bob Gibbs of Lakeville, and Mike Turner of Dayton supported the measure along with Democrats Joyce Beatty of Jefferson Township and Tim Ryan of Niles.

Stivers said that the U.S. “must lead by example and provide Ukraine with means to peacefully end Russia’s aggression. The loan guarantee bill the House passed today upholds our commitment to sovereign and democratic nations and seeks to place significant pressure on Russia to stop its unacceptable aggression against Ukraine.”
