Republican Leadership & Iran Accord
July 16, 2015
Not a surprise that Speaker John Boehner has taken a very aggressive and harsh stand against the recent Iran Accord.
Boehner could be correct, although it would be a first for him.
Boehner has led the charge to spend untold fortunes — and has further wasted even more precious intellectual resources — fighting to repeal the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare), all to no avail.
Each and every one of Boehner’s arguments on why the ACA would destroy the US economy has been refuted by facts — clear economic proof — which validate that we – as a nation – are on the right path. As recently as June, 19, 2015, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office projected that repealing the ACA law would COST some $353 Billion over the next decade.
Now, he wants to waste more of our precious resources on another foolish boondoggle?
It seems that Speaker Boehner has modeled himself after the storied “Chicken Little” — focused entirely on those possible events which might cause the sky to fall, rather than on the inevitability of change, and how to best embrace the future.
It is no wonder the Republican Party is in such a state of confusion and disarray.
