Democrats found time to bring a comedian to Capitol Hill, but refuse to have a vote on preventing tax increases at the end of the year, House Minority Leader John Boehner said Sunday, lamenting Congress’ plan to skip a vote on extending Bush-era tax cuts before adjourning for campaign season.

Washington is spending more time with comedians than debating (our) economic future,” Boehner said, referring to comedian Stephen Colbert’s mocking testimony of the House on Friday. “They have time to bring a comedian to Washington, D.C., but they don’t have time to end the uncertainty.

If we leave here this week and adjourn for the election without passing tax cuts, this will be the most irresponsible thing we’ve seen,” Boehner said.
