There is big huge political news today. This news centers around the U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner.
It appears that at the end of the month or October, Boehner will retire from the Office he has inadequately manned (ha-ha) for the last two congressional terms.
He has done a piss-poor job as the leader of the House republicans. First and foremost, the constitution says that the House has the power of the purse which means that it has the ability to allot or not allot money to the federal government. There are several times in the last terms in the House where the republicans could have and should have used the the abilities which the constitution has granted to the House. We know the republicans are so gun shy that they would blamed for a government shut down. I have always said that the government should be shut down and that fear should not be there.
Boehner needed to go and so does Mitch McConnell.
