Does Boehner's Job As Speaker Teeter On The Edge After Fiscal Cliff Vote?

1/2/2013

Could the fiscal cliff vote have pushed House Speaker John Boehner over the edge? Probably Not.

Listen:

House Republicans admit that Speaker John Boehner is in a tough position politically, facing a Democratic Senate and White House, but Republican Congressman Larry Bucshon says Boehner should still lead the House.

Bucshon says he thinks other House Republicans will vote in Boehner for another term as Speaker because of his conservative voting record matching the leanings of the rest of the caucus.

According to Bucshon, Boehner will have a chance to flex some political muscle in the next few months, as debt ceiling negotiations will start again, and spending cuts are certain to come up for discussion.
