Robert Wright: Boehner’s painted himself into a corner

October 15, 2013 

If the speaker of the House would hold a clean continuing resolution vote on the floor of the House, the government shutdown would end immediately. But it would also expose him for what he truly is, an obstructionist and a liar. Looks to me like John Boehner has gotten himself into a pickle.
