At a press conference, a combative House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said he will not agree to a short-term government spending bill without budget cuts. Paraphrasing the 41st president, Republican George H.W. Bush, Boehner ended the press conference stating that "When we say we're going to cut spending, read my lips, We're going to cut spending." The event took place on Capitol Hill in Washington DC on Thursday, February 17, 2011. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
