David Koch BÏTÇH Slaps John Boehner and Gets His Agenda Wish

David Koch Gets His Way With John Boehner

John Boehner - Koch Sniffer

The story in part from Think Progress here:

Last week, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) bluntly refused to bring up any debt ceiling vote in the House without demanding Democratic concessions first, telling ABC’s This Week, “We are not going to pass a clean debt limit increase.”

But, then conservative powerhouses Heritage Foundation and Koch Industries made room for a new plan when they both urged Republicans to approve a debt ceiling increase with no strings attached.

Now, in a striking change in tone, House GOP leadership have presented a clean six-week debt ceiling extension that does not include a plan to fund the government. At a press conference Thursday, House GOP leadership announced the precise new strategy, and a mere one day after Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham admitted the group will “give the speaker some flex on a short-term debt limit increase,” in order to extend the shutdown over Obama-care.

So, who do the GOPers work for - what does the people's house, now firmly under GOP majority rule, stand for? Certainly not the country nor the people they profess to serve.

So, Mr. Koch: what's next on your GOP shopping list? Shame on the GOP for caving to this billionaire's every whim.
