Unprecedented majorities of Americans support:
- background checks on gun purchases
- employment protection for LGBT folks
- immigration reform
- raising the minimum wage
There are enough votes in Congress to pass legislation in these areas with broad bipartisan majorities.
John Boehner – knowing such legislation would pass – refuses to let the House of Representatives vote. The country wants it. The Congress wants it. John Boehner stands in the way of this. He is a ‘majority’ of one. Who is he working for?
