Boehner resignation good news for country

U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie won’t miss John Boehner.

House Speaker Boehner’s announcement that he would resign from Congress Oct. 30 is good for the nation, House Republicans and Massie himself, the Northern Kentucky Republican congressman told the Enquirer Friday.

“I think it’s good news for the country,” Massie said. “Now it is up to members of Congress to decide what to do with the gift that has been handed to them. I hope we don’t squander it.”


Who does Massie support? Massie said he hasn’t committed, but he thinks Republican Florida Rep. Daniel Webster is a strong candidate.

He believes Webster would govern “from the bottom up.” That means people like Massie would get their long-stalled bills heard more in committee and on the floor. He hopes this means his bill to audit the Federal Reserve and his “food freedom” bills that would lift restrictions on items, such as raw milk, will move forward.

Massie looks like he knows what is going to go down while Boehner looks clueless.
