Republican Fail: House Speaker Boehner's Bogus Federal Jobs Claim

Those hard-nosed, straight-talking House Republicans promised to bring honesty and transparency to the Congress.

Speaker John Boehner, the House Republican leader, was supposed to the face of a new, improved GOP, one held to a higher standard than those lyin' liberal Democrats.

Too bad Boehner can't live up to his own claims, as he demonstrated today when he attacked the president's proposed budget. The Speaker claimed that the Obama administration has added 200,000 new federal jobs. 

Heavens! No wonder the conservatives are up in arms!

The problem: Boehner's claim isn't true, as PolitiFact has documented. Read the facts here.
