Rep. Price: We Still Need to Find Positive Solutions

The money quote is at the end of the excerpt.

The deal that ended the threat of government default is merely “the response to a crisis manufactured by the President and a Democrat party content with the nation’s fiscal ruin,” according to Rep. Tom Price, the man many see as a potential successor to House Speaker John Boehner.

“For weeks, House Republicans have given our colleagues opportunity after opportunity to focus on the real challenges before us — a ballooning debt, a weak economy and a health care law that is contributing to both,” said the Georgia Republican in a statement.

“That there’s now an agreement in place to talk about how we solve them is a good first step, but one has to wonder why the Democrat majority in Washington needed two weeks of a government shutdown and a run-up to the debt ceiling in order to agree to talk about doing their job.”

Price’s name is being bandied around Washington as the most likely to succeed Boehner should the Ohio congressman decide he has had enough after nearly seven years as the top Republican in the House.
