Rep. Capuano Statement on the Resignation of John Boehner

September 25, 2015

I almost never agreed with him, but I believe Speaker Boehner understood that legislating is about compromise. I have no idea what his resignation will mean for the direction of the country but I am concerned it will lead to worsening gridlock. Republicans will have to decide whether they are finally willing to reach across the aisle to find compromise or move closer to the extreme right wing of their party.
