‘Pep talk’ ad urges House speaker to ‘be a better Boehner’

SHARE ‘Pep talk’ ad urges House speaker to ‘be a better Boehner’

After a summer break, Congress is getting back to work and has some must-do tasks, including preventing a government shutdown and extending a freeze on taxing access to the Internet.

House Speaker John Boehner has said the message from Republicans, or their “closing argument,” will focus on getting Americans back to work to “restore opportunity.”

And Boehner is squarely in the sights of Democrats, with Organizing for Action releasing a new ad Monday morning focusing on Boehner — or “sugar” and “Speaker B” — as he’s referred to in the ad.

“Be the best Boehner you can be,” it pleads.
