Thompson Issues Statement on Speaker Boehner’s Retirement Announcement

Washington, DC – Congressman Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) today released the following statement on the upcoming retirement of House Speaker John Boehner:

"I was present earlier today when Speaker Boehner announced before the House Republican Conference that he would be resigning from Congress at the end of October.

“Over the few years I have been in Congress, I have greatly appreciated John Boehner's sincerity, candor and friendship.

“I say to my fellow Republicans, let's not forget John Boehner's pivotal role in bringing our party to the most significant majority since World War II.

“Also, let's not squander the opportunity provided to us by the American people to advance conservative principles in a unified House.

“My hope for all Americans is to remember Speaker Boehner's service in Congress as that of a statesman from Ohio, a gentleman of humble beginnings, son of a bartender, who through hard work and perseverance honorably served his country in one of the highest capacities.

“John Boehner's story is the story of America, where hard work and determination can go a long way. It should serve as an example for people from all walks of life – that those who wish to make themselves and their country a better place can do it right here in America. I wish the Speaker the best of luck in the next chapter of his story.”

Now we need to have term limits so the rest of the career politicians have to leave as well, say max 8 years, that is what is needed to fix the problems in DC.

I agree with number 1 comment. Term limits so they don't turn into a Rhino as many has done lately. This is why we have Obama care and 18 trillion in debt. Not counting the number of innocent lives taken in combat but through planned parent hood. The republicans for the past 8 years have promised us they would stop what has happened to our country and then when it came to push comes to shove , they backed down every time. Enough bad water under the bridge. Lets make sure we vote come election day. We might see change for the good come out of our votes this time. .//////////
