Washington Weekly Review
Catholics strongly disapprove of the job President Obama is doing as the debate continues over his administration’s new policy forcing Catholic institutions to pay for contraception they morally oppose. While the president’s overall job approval ratings have improved over the past couple of months, they have remained steady among Catholics.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of likely Catholic voters nationwide at least somewhat disapprove of the president’s job performance, while 40% at least somewhat approve. But the passion’s on the side of those who don’t like the job he’s doing: 44% Strongly Disapprove versus 19% who Strongly Approve... (READ MORE)

Speaker Boehner on Passage of Tax Cut for 160 million Americans
WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner issued the following statement after the House passed the payroll tax cut conference agreement:
“I support this measure and thank Chairman Camp and our conferees for all their efforts to resolve this issue in a constructive fashion. There are a number of positive aspects to this agreement, including preventing a tax increase on hardworking Americans and the spectrum initiative, which will help create jobs, spur innovation and economic investment, and support public safety. But let’s keep in mind that aside from the spectrum provisions that have long been a part of the Republican jobs plan, this is an economic relief bill – not a growth bill. The only reason the provisions at the core of this measure are even necessary is because the president’s economic policies have failed. It is also unfortunate that this agreement is only partially offset because of Democrats’ refusal to consider common-sense, bipartisan spending cuts, many of which were drawn from the president’s own budget...

The President’s Budget: What a Failure of Leadership Looks Like
Washington, D.C.– U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement on the Senate floor Monday regarding the President’s unserious budget proposal:
“Today, President Obama released a budget that isn’t really a budget at all. It’s a campaign document.
“The President’s goal isn’t to solve our problems, but to ignore them for another year, which will only ensure they get even worse. Once again, the President is shirking his responsibility to lead by using this budget to divide.
“The game plan is clear: Rather than reach out to Congress to craft a consensus budget, the President will take this budget on the road, as he did today, and talk about the parts he thinks audiences will like. What he won’t say is that it’s bad for job creation, bad for seniors, and that it will make the economy worse... (READ MORE)
Rep. Tom Price: President Obviously Doesn’t Grasp the Seriousness of Fiscal Situation
The only honest conclusion one can draw from President Obama’s fiscal 2013 budget is that this administration refuses to recognize the seriousness of America’s fiscal crisis and is recklessly unwilling to address the challenges we face.
There’s no other explanation, short of sheer political calculation, for proposing a budget that simply increases spending, taxing and borrowing. The White House claims $4 trillion in deficit reduction over a 10-year period without any feasible path to paying off the debt over time. This supposed $4 trillion does not even cover the debt accumulated on the president’s own watch! The president proposes $1.9 trillion in new taxes on hardworking taxpayers and small-business owners. Those are the job creators across this country, who are already trying to figure out how to weather the discomfort and financial jeopardy posed by the president’s other major domestic pursuits, such as his healthcare law and onerous regulations...
