The group that said it had the votes to oust Speaker John Boehner (or atleast move the vote for a Speaker of the United States House to at least a second or third ballot) several weeks ago is now claiming that “climate change” will be a part of the debt deal before President Obama and Congress.
Last week Viral Read broke news with a statement from House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Ca.) which we obtained to fact-check American Majority Action‘s claim that Issa stood with them in deeming the ‘No Budget, No Pay’ proposal unconstitutional.

The Congressman pointed out that his earlier statements had been taken out of context, even while he had specifically said, “Congress could temporarily withhold pay.”
American Majority Action’s ability to be factually incorrect time and time again over the past two months hasn’t stopped it’s 23-year old spokesman from making claims involving House rules, parliamentary procedure, questions of constitutionality of bills, budget forecasts and now — weather forecasts.
