What a shocker. You’re sadly mistaken, Mr. Speaker. This debate-such as it is-is all about you. It’s about your fecklessness, your inability to stand up for principled conservatism-or principled anything, for that matter-and your consistent willingness to screw over ordinary Americans in order to placate corporate donors. A substantial part of your own caucus doesn’t trust you, and you’ve demonstrated by your words and actions that they are right to be weary.

Remind John Boehner that he is not there to rubber-stamp the President’s agenda. This is a man who urges concerned citizens-both inside and outside of his congressional district- to contact his office, and I encourage you to take him up on this offer. It’s time to make your voice heard and see if Mr. Boehner can be persuaded to take a stand on the most pivotal issue facing this Congress.
