Boehner Faces First Defections

Tom Williams/Roll Call
Speaker John Boehner experienced a series of legislative setbacks this week, showing that party unity isn’t always a given in the majority.

“I think the American public is going to have an opportunity to view the Republicans’ performance as opposed to the rhetoric they have been using for the past few years,” the Maryland Democrat said.
