He’s helping the Democrats
Recently on CNN, Former Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) claimed that the high number of mass shootings across America has become a complete embarrassment.
According to Breitbart, CNN’s Dana Bash asked, “47 mass shootings in the United States in just over the last month. And I know you know this, polls show the vast majority of Americans support at least some new gun restrictions. When you were speaker, there were 20 first-graders killed in Newtown, Connecticut. Looking back, do you regret not passing laws then, and do you to see Republicans come to the table now at least to pass something?”
Boehner responded, “Well, back when Newtown happened, we couldn’t find common ground with the other side.”
Adding, “Hopefully, there’s some common ground to be found. I know that Sen. Pat Toomey has been working on this across the aisle, trying to come to some agreement. Hopefully, they will find some common ground, because frankly, it’s heartbreaking. I think it’s embarrassing our country to the rest of the world. And we have got to find a way to deal with this problem.”
