CONGRESSMAN SANFORD BISHOP STATEMENT ON RESIGNATION OF SPEAKER BOEHNER
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop Jr. (GA-02) released the following statement today after Speaker John Boehner announced his resignation:
"The resignation of my friend, Speaker John Boehner, reflects the frustration that many Americans feel as a result of a Congress that has proven increasingly dysfunctional over the last few years. The inability of members of the Republican Conference to cooperate with each other, let alone with Democrats in the House, cries out for renewed commitment to less finger-pointing and more joint problem solving for the common good of the American People. I thank John Boehner for his service and his friendship and wish the best for him and his family going forward."
