That's House Minority Leader Boehner protesting a Democratic proposal to end the Iraq War.
He didn't come to Congress to be a Congressperson, he came to do something. And yet, what has my Congressman done so far this term?
He voted against one of the largest tax cuts in American history. He voted against health insurance for children. He voted against giving victims of gender-based discrimination in the workplace justice. He voted against extending unemployment benefits to those hit hard by the worst economy since the Great Depression. And last week, John Boehner voted against more funding for our troops.
How do Republicans justify voting against more funding for our troops? Well, first you lie and claim that Obama was actually CUTTING defense funding instead of increasing it:

|Full Metal Budget|
And then you pray that that the lazy media buys your justification for voting against a military budget that increases troop spending during a two-front war and misinforms the voters back home so nobody finds out what a phony asshat you really are.
John Boehner has voted against tax cuts, healthy kids, and our troops. And so has almost the entire Congressional Republicans. It's about time people started pointing out that not only is Boehner the leader and architect of "the Party of 'No,'" but exactly what Boehner and the Republican Party has been saying "No" to.
