Boehner’s Plan B Fails, House GOP In Chaos

Stunning political collapse by John Boehner...
John Boehner's "Plan B" political stunt has failed, as he could not even get his House Republicans to support the bill. This is a pretty stunning political failure by a guy who is cementing his legacy as one of the weakest Speakers ever. Why Boehner would even attempt this political stunt (and it is a stunt since the bill was never going to pass the Senate or get signed by Obama) when he wasn't 100% sure he could even get his own party to support it is a head-scratcher.
It raises questions about whether Eric Cantor and/or other high-ranking House Republicans are even sincerely working with Boehner at this point, or if they are part of the sabotaging of Boehner's power that is clearly going on now.
