Hey, John Boehner

Hey, John Boehner….
Remember those schoolkids you get too teared-up to visit?

They’re living in poverty these days, they tell us on 60 Minutes. They’re living in cars and cheap hotels and the spare rooms of their neighbors and in shelters. They’re dropping out of school to try to help their unemployed parents pay the bills. They’re seeing their Playstations and Barbie dolls get sold for storage fees. Too soon, one in four will be a child in poverty….

They’re blaming themselves, these kids, for the fate of their family.

I blame you.

Sometimes a kid’s American dream is as simple as a home.
