John Boehner, speaker of the U.S. House, should be replaced immediately. I can't believe the House gave him a standing ovation for what he should've done two weeks prior to the government shutdown — submit a clean continuing resolution. This would have prevented the shutdown and then Congress could have dealt with real priority issues, such as jobs!
How many people have been affected by Boehner's catering to the 10 percent of the tea party members who hold hardworking Americans hostage? People who couldn't afford to be off work — those making less than $30,000 — were certainly affected. Shame on Boehner!
