Boehner Says Electorate More Polarized Than Ever
The Ohio Republican congressman who's retiring in frustration over political gridlock says he hopes the institution doesn't have to hit "rock bottom" before members learn to work in a bi-partisan fashion. Steve LaTourette told MSNBC today voters haven't demanded enough change. But U.S. House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio says it is the public and not politicians who are polarized. Congress has departed for five weeks of vacation and prospects of a fall fraught with decisions on America's political and economic future.
