Boehner Rips Conservatives Criticizing Budget Pact

Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) blasted conservative groups criticizing the bipartisan budget deal, Politico reports.

Said Boehner: "They're using our members and they're using the American people for their own goals. This is ridiculous."

"Boehner's comments came after House Republicans huddled behind closed doors for more than an hour to discuss the deal. Ryan made the same argument inside the meeting that he's made publicly: This is a deficit reduction bill. Rep. Hal Rogers, the appropriations chairman, voiced support for the deal."

"But others weren't ready to back the agreement, reflecting the challenge ahead for House GOP leaders as they try to move the bill by the end of the week."
