John Boehner wrong again

House Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner from Ohio claimed “I’m still trying to find the first American to talk to who’s in favor of the public option, other than a member of Congress or the administration”.

This despite national polls showing the majority of Americans want the public option.

And Boehner’s own Ohio heavily favors the public option.

“Ohio voters support 57 – 35 percent the idea of giving American consumers the option of buying health insurance from a government-run plan.”

Does Boehner think he represents the insurance industry?  Because he simply is not representing those who elected him.
Vote this loser out please, Ohio.
