How can John Boehner listen to the will of the American people if he can’t follow his own rhetoric?
House Speaker John Boehner told us repeatedly that Republicans had no intention of shutting down the government; as recently as a few weeks before House Republicans shut down the government he told us that he had no intention of shutting down the government. Boehner told us that shutting down the government was “totally irresponsible,” that it would raise the deficit.
Instead of following his own rhetoric. Instead of following the will and the interests of the American people, Speaker Boehner followed the Tea Party and shut down the government, hurting working Americans and jeopardizing the economy.
Tell John Boehner and the House Republicans, enough already! Get back to work and pass a clean budget resolution now!
