Boehner was defeated by 50+ conservative GOP house members who told him to take his purge and shove it.
Who were joined by Pelosi and every rat in the house who want to see our taxes go up and Republicans getting the blame for it.
But in way this post is wrong.
This successful raise in our taxes tonight is a great step towards replacing Bohner with Pelosi.
If these *conservatives* are so brave then how come none of them will challenge Bohner as Speaker?
Answer: Because they figure Pelosi will just knock them off after this to become Speaker, so instead they will just whine and complain until the House makes the real (Big) cave next year to O that will show that defeating this was a disater. And what will their legacy be then?
