Letter: Boehner embarrasses GOP
The ship is heading toward a huge iceberg that has been in plain sight for weeks. The captains in charge of the ship, instead of compromising on a satisfactory course, are arguing like school children while the world watches in utter amazement! Then they are mad, no longer wanting to play, so they abandon the navigation deck for a few days, disregarding the welfare of the passengers and crew, while the ship continues on its perilous course.
With a $400,000 income compromise on the table, the best House Speaker John Boehner could do was his weak “Plan B” that was lacking in detail and set the income level at $1 million. What? I remember being a proud Republican when the Republican Party was for the conservative working man.
It’s time for Boehner to step aside for the good of his party. He’s an embarrassment!
