Yesterday, Speaker Boehner and House leadership did something that’s never been done in American history: They voted to sue the President.
What’s certain is that this is an utter waste of time and millions of taxpayer dollars.
But it gets crazier — this opens the door for extreme voices in Congress to call for impeachment.
I wish that was as unbelievable as it sounds. But look at John Boehner’s track record: He let an extreme minority shut down the government, gave them more than 50 votes trying to derail Obamacare, and now he’s letting them call the shots over a wasteful lawsuit.
This isn’t going to stop unless the American people demand it — right now, add your name to tell John Boehner you’re fed up with this nonsense.
As grassroots organizers who are working for real change that actually helps people, what’s most frustrating is that political stunts like this lawsuit only make it more unlikely that they’ll get something meaningful done.
John Boehner is the Speaker of the House. That’s a job that should mean something — the chance to fix problems and tackle the issues that the American people sent you there to do.
Instead, he’s one of the biggest reasons this is the least productive Congress in modern history.
That’s pretty shameful, and what just happened yesterday on Capitol Hill is making matters worse.
Add your name to tell John Boehner to knock off the political games and get something done:
