Boehner: Tax Increase ‘Unacceptable’

Those days of playing nice with the president on the golf course are over.

But he said he’s willing to work with Obama’s proposals even if they clash with the GOP’s principles. “I’m the most reasonable, responsible person here in Washington,” Boehner added. “The president knows it.”
