In the latest development of Democratic House members’ town hall meetings being disrupted by the Tea Party crowd, House Minority Leader John Boehner’s (R-OH) office is now applauding this turn of events.
“Back home for the August recess, rank-and-file Democratic Members of the House are facing a backlash from their constituents, who are already fed up with Washington’s job-killing agenda and don’t support Democrats’ government takeover of health care,” says a press release posted on Boehner’s official blog.
The release then recounts the nasty reception that Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) has gotten, and declares that “Rep. Doggett is not alone.”
The posting concludes: “Unless Democratic leaders agree to work with Republicans on a bipartisan plan that achieves real reform that Americans are seeking, it will be a long, hot August for Democrats in Congress.”
