You would think someone who has been in Congress for 20 years wouldn’t have any fears of debating a newcomer to the political scene, but not John Boehner:
And without saying no specifically, Boehner will not accept the challenge to a debate issued several weeks ago by Coussoule.
“I’m involved in the national debate each and every day and there isn’t a constituent in my district if they’re interested that doesn’t know where I stand on all the issues,” Boehner said.
A debate is the best way for the voters to get an understanding of where all the candidates stand on the issues. The fact that John Boehner refuses to do so is proof that he cares nothing about his constituents.
