Have Boehner Disband The Hastert Rule

Democracy is, inherently, about compromise. It's about listening to the will of the people and respecting the decisions they make when they vote. Sometimes those votes go against the personal beliefs of our elected officials - but our officials aren't in office to spout their own ideals; they're there to protect ours. Please sign this petition as a reminder to House Speaker Boehner that listening only to the intensity of his own party is a direct violation of the job our representatives were elected to do. I'm fed up with politicians holding our economy hostage with ideas that the American people voted against in 2012. Read more here:

Have Boehner Disband The Hastert Rule

As well as we all know that the Hastert rule means that the speaker can only abide to the majority of the majority; in which he has fundamentally failed as a speaker. I truly believe that he is doing so because there can only be one reason for this and that would be that he no longer wants the job as speaker. Well I for one don't blame him as he is faced with all kinds of obstruction from his own party. So we as American need to bring this up to everyone's attention and force his hand to do what is right for the American people. So I urge all persons, friends, and who ever reads this to sign the petition, make a stance as say enough is enough!
