In 2011, John Boehner called a potential government shutdown irresponsible and costly. Now, we are in the midst of a shutdown that is harming our economy—all because the Speaker is letting the Tea Party call the shots.
John Boehner knows the shut down is irresponsible and costly, so why doesn’t he stop it? Every day that the Republican shutdown goes on, the price grows for average Americans and puts our nation and our economy at risk. It’s time for Speaker Boehner to stand up to the extremists in the Republican Party. It’s time for Speaker Boehner to act like a leader and stop caving in to the demands of the Tea Party.
Speaker Boehner has the power to stop this now —tell him to stand up to the Tea Party and end the shutdown.
