Tell John Boehner: It’s time to cut the tea party loose
John Boehner’s failure to pass a bill that would prevent a government shutdown shows that his right-wing caucus has no interest in basic governance.
The Tea Party’s obsessive focus on defunding Obamacare has ground government to a halt. Now, they’re threatening to shut down the government and force a default on the national debt.
Boehner has to realize that he only has two options on the table:
1) Give into the demands of his right-wing caucus and force a government shutdown and a debt ceiling default, setting off an unprecedented and totally avoidable economic meltdown, or
2) Cut the Tea Party loose and begin working with Democrats right now to keep the government funded and avoid a debt ceiling default that would tank the economy and the recovery going.
Join Daily Kos and the DCCC and tell John Boehner: It’s time to cut the Tea Party loose and work with Democrats to keep the government funded and avoid a disastrous default.
