LLPH made the following statement in response to Speaker John Boehner’s announcement that he would resign:
We are thankful for the years of service that Speaker Boehner has provided. We wish him and his family well and all the best.
With that being said, his speakership has mostly been one characterized by surrender. That is the reason he is one of the few members who has a 0% on LLPH’s scorecard.
We hope to reform the GOP leadership by bringing true conservatives to lead the House Republicans. We will also work hard to ensure that a conservative leader, in the form of someone like Rep. Dave Brat who took out Former Majority Leader Eric Cantor, will take Speaker Boehner’s seat.
Perhaps the best article to read to sum up Speaker Boehner’s resignation is this one: K Street Crushed, Conservatives Elated over Boehner Departure.
