Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on Boehner’s latest cave


“Sadly, we’ve seen yet another reason why conservatives do not and should not trust Establishment Republicans. Rewarded by the American people with historic majorities for opposing executive amnesty, their capitulation began almost immediately.

“First, Speaker Boehner whipped votes with the President in December’s lame duck session, so eager was he to fund nearly the entire government through September. ‘Don’t worry,’ we were told. The House would not fund the Obama executive amnesty.

“And how many days ago did the Speaker reiterate his hard line and flex his new-found muscle on Fox News Sunday? Now, yet again, he again uses Democrat votes to give the President what he wants.

“That this has happened over and over makes it no less of a betrayal, Mr. Speaker. You’ve topped yourself once more.”
