Senior Content Editorchecked the news lately. John Boehner, Republican Speaker of the House, spoke out against the Democratic party on Tuesday for accusing Republicans of wanting to impeach President Obama.
This whole talk about impeachment is coming from the president's own staff and coming from Democrats on Capitol Hill. Why? Because they're trying to rally their people to give money and to show up in this year's election," Boehner said. "We have no plans to impeach the president. We have no future plans.According to CBS news, Democratic campaign organizers have sent out several emails warning against the Republican party and their desire to impeach the President.The email sent out just before Boehner's statement--"House Republicans Refuse to Rule Out Impeachment"--raised $2.1 million in online donations over the weekend. Even though Boehner claims it's just politics between the two parties, he does not deny the House Republicans are planning to vote on a bill. This bill will allow them to file a lawsuit against President Obama on the grounds that he has not implemented the Affordable Care Act as initially written. The measure cleared the House Rules Committee last week on a part-line vote, and has since pushed Democrats into full fundraising mode. "We've made it clear we're going to put options on the table to allow the House to take legal action against the president when he overreaches his authority," Steve Scalise, House Majority Whip (R), said in a "Fox News Sunday" interview.
"The White House will do anything they can to change the topic away from the president's failed agenda," Scalise said. "We're going to continue focusing on solving problems for everyday people. I'd like to see the president engaged in that, too - that's his job. But for whatever reason he wants to change the topic, talk about things like this."
Even the White House's senior advisor, Dan Pfeiffer, said he would "not discount that possibility."
What could this mean for the future of our country?
"Impeachment is a very serious thing that has been bandied about by the recent Republican vice presidential nominee and various others in a very un-serious way," Pfeiffer said, referring to former Gov. Sarah Palin, who joined the impeachment caucus earlier this month. "It would be foolish to say Republicans would not consider going down that path."
