Boehner’s Plan B Fails, House GOP In Chaos
John Boehner’s “Plan B” political stunt has failed, as he could not even get his House Republicans to support the bill. This is a pretty stunning political failure by a guy who is cementing his legacy as one of the weakest Speakers ever. Why Boehner would even attempt this political stunt (and it is a stunt since the bill was never going to pass the Senate or get signed by Obama) when he wasn’t 100% sure he could even get his own party to support it is a head-scratcher.
It raises questions about whether Eric Cantor and/or other high-ranking House Republicans are even sincerely working with Boehner at this point, or if they are part of the sabotaging of Boehner’s power that is clearly going on now.
