Sanders Statement on Speaker Boehner’s Resignation

WASHINGTON, Sept. 25 – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement today after Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) announced he will resign at the end of October:

“It appears that even a very conservative speaker like John Boehner is unable to control the extreme right-wing drift of Republicans in the House. This is a party whose ideology is way out of touch with the American people. Without Boehner, it may get even worse.”
