Many things are changing for John Boehner. Figures in close knit allies are beginning to wonder whether he will survive the floor vote and remain the speaker of the house. Already many aides don’t believe he will run for House leadership in 2017.
It seems the era of Boehner is coming to a halt. Rep Lynn Westmoreland said, “That’s a personal decision he has to make. I don’t know why he would want to, personally.” Congress returned on Tuesday and it will be one of Boehner’s most challenging stretches. When lawmakers were interviewed they mainly sympathize with his plight.
All through his tenure Boehner was caught between a Democratic President and an interactive right flank. As the 65 year old approaches quarter century service in the House he has done so much. He spent the summer all over the country at 50 different political events on behalf of the Republican lawmakers. Generally the mild temper of the Republican from Ohio has seen wild swings. His political fortunes might go from hero to Republican in just a matter of days.
This fall Boehner faces a potential government shutdown, Planned Parenthood, risk of debt default and showdown over highway spending. With still much to be handled his aides say they expect there will be a vote to oust him.
