2. Too Late John - The Damage Is Done - Worst Speaker Of The House Ever......

makes all the wrong decisions for the wrong reasons. If you only thought about the responsibility of serving the American People you might have had a different outcome and a better legacy. Now you will be tainted forever for serving your campaign donors and thinking only of yourself.

Bye, bye John!!!!!!

6. "Prioritize"

I recall Boehner saying that job creation was the priority of this past congress.

How did that work out for us?
