"Monday night, the president said 'some people believe we should do nothing," Boehner said, according to a Republican aide who spoke to CBS News' Jill Jackson. "He was talking about you."
The leak of Boehner's comments appears to be an attempt by Republicans to gain ground in the ongoing public relations battle around the stimulus bill.
"I don't think anyone in this room has said 'do nothing' was an option," Boehner continued, according to the aide. "We are for solutions that work, not wasteful spending that won't. Our plan creates twice as many jobs at half the cost. We need to continue to communicate that every day back in our districts. Don't let anyone distort our position."
