Breaking: John Boehner Makes MAJOR Announcement about Congress! What Will Happen Next?

WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 16: Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) told reporters that the House will again vote to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, during a news conference on Capitol Hill May 16, 2013 in Washington, DC. Boehner also fielded questions from reporters about the Obama Administrations' subpoena of AP phone records, the IRS scrutiny of conservative political groups' applications for tax exemption and other issues.

The Speaker of the House, Rep. John Boehner, is to retire from Congress.

The Ohio lawmaker will step down at the end of October.

There’s no word yet on who his replacement will be as Speaker, but many right-wingers will be delighted that a man who they regard as insufficiently conservative will no longer be leading the GOP in the House.

On the other hand, Boehner won key concession from the President on the budget and federal spending limits, and there’s no guarantee that his successor will have similar success.

So what do you think? Is Speaker Boehner’s retirement something to celebrate… or will conservatives regret his leaving? Let us know below.

    Why don’t you leave today, tonight? That way, you can start drinking 24/7…….Oh wait, you’re ALREADY drinking 24/7. Don’t forget to give Obama a slap on the *ss and Nancy a nice wet one on the way out.

  2. Brenda says:

    I’m thrilled Boehner is leaving, but scared as to who will become the next Speaker! America desperately needs a strong leader who won’t let Obama lead them around by the balls!!! But, will Congress elect another ass kisser??? We all need to pray!

  3. Ted says:

    good this man has been a piece of crap his whole career, a traitor to his party and the american people–obama has some bad stuff on him and the wall is closing in on his traitorous antics–good riddance to bad rubbish !!

  4. Chuck says:

    Long past due. Now a REAL Conservative needs to be elected to the post of Speaker. No MORE RINO’s

    In the words of Martha Stewart – “It’s a good thing”
