John Boehner needs a dose of real talk

Organizing for Action
Pete --

John Boehner is wasting everybody's time.

To date, Speaker Boehner and House leadership have done zip, zero, nada, nothing to make real progress for the American people.

In fact, we're on track to have the least productive Congress in history.

But of course, now they're spending their time -- and our taxpayer dollars -- suing President Obama.

Seriously -- that's their big plan.

I'd like to tell him exactly what I think of his "plan," and if you would, too, OFA is here to help.

We're collecting notes that volunteers will hand-deliver to his office -- if you're fired up, write John Boehner a note right now.

It's absurd. Here's just a smattering of things Speaker Boehner has blocked progress on:

    -- Raising the minimum wage for millions of hard-working Americans

    -- Making long-term investments in infrastructure (and creating a lot of good-paying jobs)

    -- Providing some relief for hundreds of thousands with crippling student loan debt

    -- Protecting the country against the impacts of climate change

    -- Stopping legal discrimination against LGBT Americans

    -- Holding a single vote to fix our broken immigration system

That's not even remotely a complete list of the ways John Boehner is letting the American people down.

On his list of accomplishments are a bunch of pointless votes to defund Obamacare, shutting down the government for 16 days, and -- now -- suing the President for doing his job.

It makes you wonder who these House leaders think they work for.

Seems like they need a little dose of perspective, so let's make sure our voices are heard -- write Speaker Boehner a note for OFA to deliver:
