Standing before a blue screen dotted with #LetsTalk hashtags, Speaker John Boehner blasted President Barack Obama and Democrats on Friday for playing a game of brinksmanship over the government shutdown and the hitting of the looming debt ceiling.

“This isn’t some damn game!” Boehner said at a press conference. “The American people don’t want their government shutdown and neither do I! All we’re asking for is to sit down and have a discussion, reopen the government, and bring fairness to the American people under Obamacare.”

“It’s as simple as that,” he explained. “But it all has to begin with a simple discussion.”

For months, Democrats and the Obama administration have refused to negotiate with Republicans on a plan to raise the $16.7 trillion debt ceiling, which the nation will officially hit October 17.
