Letter: Restore majority rule
House Speaker John Boehner is supporting the shakedown by his Tea Party minority to repeal Obamacare. Extortion is a crime, and the Tea Party has transformed the Republican Party into a crime syndicate.
It’s not that Republicans haven’t encouraged these zealots, but the sorcerer’s apprentice is now out of control. It is up to reasonable Republicans to retake the reins of their party. I urge my Republican friends and neighbors to put a stop to this nonsense before the Tea Party jeopardizes the full faith and credit of the United States. I also encourage our two Democratic congressional representatives, Carol Shea-Porter and Annie Kuster, to work with real Republicans to restore order in the House of Representatives. If necessary, they should get together, remove Boehner as speaker and restore majority rule.
