Heritage Action rips Boehner

The conservative group Heritage Action slammed Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) late Thursday for mocking Republicans who have resisted taking on immigration reform.

“It’s disappointing, but by now not surprising, that the Republican Speaker is attacking conservatives looking to retake the Senate,” Heritage Action CEO Michael A. Needham said in a statement.

Needham said the Republican Party should be large enough for “fact-based policy debates,” which he suggested Boehner isn’t interested in having.

“Unfortunately, John Boehner is more interested in advancing the agenda of high-powered DC special interests than inspiring Americans with a policy vision that allows freedom, opportunity, prosperity and civil society to flourish.”

Tensions between Boehner and conservative groups, including Heritage Action, have been high since the government shutdown last year. The speaker said last December that groups like Heritage Action have “lost all credibility.”

    Here’s a novel idea, instead of everyone, from Boehner to the Heritage Action, calling each other names and airing the dirty laundry for the Democrat Party to observe, how about sitting down like adults and talking through the problems. We all have more in common than we have differences. Every conservative is not going to agree with every other conservative all the time. All that this name-calling is going to do is help elect more members of the Democrat Party to Congress. So, come on guys and gals, let’s put on our adult pants and start working out our differences.

    I don’t feel sorry for the all those Tea Party members. They could have prevented Boehner from being Speaker. Most of them voted for him including Bachman even after she got no money in support from the GOP.

      Boehner had me fooled. I orginally didn’t think he was a RINO – But now he leaves No Doubt.
