    Rep. Boehner has found himself between Barack and an air base (Wright-Patterson AFB). John’s district include an AFB that employees nearly 30,000 civilian and military personnel. His district also includes thousands of people whose livelihoods depend, either directly or indirectly, from the spending and salaries generated by that Air Force Base.

    The economy in this area (yes I live in Boehner’s district) is going to suffer a HUGE negative impact as a result of his inability to take the necessary action to prevent the sequester from going into effect.

    While this district is quite Republican, John being held hostage by a group of extreme right teabaggers just might cost him his once very very secure job – and it couldn’t happen soon enough, and to a more deserving politician, as far as I’m concerned.

    Cool candle. I went all McGyver during Hurricane Sandy and made olive oil candles out of jelly jars, paperclips and kitchen string. They lasted all night and smelled great.
