but he's getting hammered (not in a Merlot way).
I don't know what it means, but John Boehner keeps posting crap about how President Obama and the Democrats won't negotiate, even though the House keeps on trying and trying to fund the government, really truly the things the American People want, bit by bit. And it's not flying. On his very own page.
He's getting a lot of comments and very very very very very little love. People aren't falling for this bullshit, people are pissed, and people are telling him in no uncertain terms this is John Boehner's shutdown and threat, and telling him to just put the vote to the floor already!
This is a working tactic. Speaker Boehner isn't allowing the people's own elected representatives to vote on how to do our basic housekeeping like paying our bills.
And hat trick to the genius who gave us 2 words in her diary...Prove it! Very awesome and I'm seeing and hearing it.
But let's add to Prove It; and say Let MY Representative vote! And let my Representative answer to me!
Rambling diary, but not gonna edit because I'm a bit tired and a bit tipsy.
Bottom line, closing argument? John Boehner will go down in history, but I doubt it will be because he "saved the American People". From health care.
Oh, and he's getting crushed on his own wee FB page.
And I'm still freaking scared. This is fucked up. No jihadists ever scared me, until they came glowing orange and BYOB of Merlot. With their lizard brain. 9 days...
