Ted Cruz Explains Why John Boehner Resigned and How He Made a Deal with Pelosi
There were cheers among conservatives over the news that John Boehner announced his resignation from Congress. But Rep. Boehner could do a lot of damage in 30 days if he follows his usual practice of giving into Obama and working with the Democrats.
Instead of leading the House majority that was given to him in the last two elections, Boehner has decided to join Team-Democrat:
“Cruz, who is seeking the Republican nomination for president, contended that Boehner cut a deal with House Minority Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to push through a continuing resolution that would fund all of President Barack Obama’s controversial measures through December. That measure cleared the Senate Monday.” (H/T: The Blaze)
Boehner knew he was in trouble as the votes against his speakership were starting to pile up. Instead of changing his ways and actually working with his own party — the party that brought him to the dance — Boehner decided to work with the Democrats.
“I believe if Speaker Boehner had done that … that he would have lost his speakership,” Cruz said. “A member of the House had introduced a motion to vacate the chair. Because House Republicans were fed up with their leader not leading.”
It’s not that Boehner wasn’t leading; he was leading the wrong party. He was being disloyal to the Republican Party and the principles that got him the speakership.
I suspect that Beohner’s aide had to say this since Cruz let the cat out of the bag before Boehner had a chance to spring his duplicity on the House. We’ll have to see if Boehner has sold out his party and sold out America.
