All who have earned income if the House does not act.
The shameful sham on the part of Speaker Boehner is that he refused to put the measure on the floor for an up-or-down vote, and then blamed everyone else for HIS leadership failure. More that likely enough of his caucus would have broken ranks to pass the measure had it gone to the floor.
If he'd had the backbone to stand alone and state the he didn't like the bill and was therefor using his power as Speaker of the House to deny a vote, I would have some grudging respect for him even though I generally don't agree with his politics or positions on most matters. But he chose to take the chicken-heart route and refuse to act while blaming everyone else. That's NOT what TRUE leaders do.
