‘So be it’ won’t cut it for speaker

Email

WASHINGTON —“So be it.” 

That was House Speaker John Boehner’s cold answer when asked Tuesday about job losses that would come from his new Republican majority’s plans to cut tens of billions of dollars in government spending this year. 

“Do you have any sort of estimate on how many jobs will be lost through this?” Pacifica Radio’s Leigh Ann Caldwell inquired at a news conference just before the House began its debate on the cuts.
