Last year House Speaker attacked President Obama for refusing to back the Republican plan to close tax loopholes.

"House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has pitched a plan that raises revenues by closing loopholes and eliminating or reducing certain tax deductions. "There is a middle ground solution that can cut spending and bring in revenue without hurting American small businesses," Boehner said"

 This is the deal - if President Obama supports something Boehner will oppose it - bottom line.

"Just two days before the sequester is set to take effect, House Speaker John Boehner will reject closing tax loopholes outside of a comprehensive rewrite of the Tax Code — the central tenet of President Barack Obama’s plan to blunt the automatic spending cuts known as the sequester.

As parts of our government closes down, and our airport sees flights reduced - just remember it was Boehner who  demanded removing loopholes who then changed his mind the day President Obama agreed.
