“‘We fought the good fight; we just didn’t win,’ Boehner told a radio station in his home state of Ohio in reference to GOP efforts to dismantle or defund President Barack Obama’s signature health care reforms and extract deficit reduction concessions around the need to fund the government and raise the federal borrowing limit.” (source)
No, Mr. Boehner, you did not fight the good fight. Instead, you are a traitor to the American people, causing the suffering of untold Americans. Here’s an example:
To quote from the above article:
“But temporary layoffs for Lorien and 200-plus workers at the resort went into effect on October 1 after the park’s closure. She expects to come back to work after the government resumes, but she won’t get back any of her lost pay because the lodge is owned by a private company.” (my bold text)
I agree with an op-ed piece I had on NPR a couple weeks ago. Boehner and the rest of the right-wing conservative Tea Party Republicans should be tried as traitors to their country.
