GOP candidates fully capable of shooting themselves in the foot without any help from Boehner

Pushing his unpopular, high-ticket transportation bill, Speaker Boehner is making the GOP candidates look like fiscal hypocrites.

Speaker Boehner faces tough test on $260 billion transportation bill

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) faces a difficult task in winning House approval of a $260 billion transportation bill that has come under attack from the right and the left.

The transportation measure is being framed as the House GOP’s jobs bill, making it critically important to Boehner and his party that it get through the lower chamber.

Yet Boehner will probably have to do it with only Republican votes, and many conservatives are skeptical the nation can afford the expensive legislation at a time of high deficits.
