John Boehner is far from perfect. But a socialist? I don't think so. One of the things that I really admire about what Speaker Boehner has done is that he has given more power to the committee's in the house, and by doing so he is giving more voice to the individual congress member. Which in turn gives more voice to the people in the districts they are representing. He has ceded some of the power that when Nancy Pelosi was speaker grabbed away from the members. She only allowed a few people to make all the decisions. That is not representative government.
