After the news of John Boehner’s resignation, Bobby Jindal called for Senate Leader Mitch McConnell to follow the Speaker into retirement.
“Here’s what I say in response to Speaker Boehner stepping down: Mitch McConnell, it is now your turn,” Jindal told receptive attendees at the conservative Values Voter Summit on Friday.
The Louisiana Governor, who is running back of the pack for the GOP nomination for president, urged McConnell to “turn in his gavel” along with Boehner.
But Bobby Jindal went further by blasting the entire GOP caucus in the House of Representatives, characterizing them as do-nothings. “That’s one down, that’s 434 more to go,” Jindal thundered. “Folks, it is time to fire everybody in D.C.,” he added.
Gov. Jindal has made attacks on the establishment a mainstay of his campaign for president, criticizing Washington for its failure on such issues as terrorism, immigration, and the defunding of abortion mill operators Planned Parenthood.
In fact, in the most recent debate, Jindal proclaimed that “it is time to be done with the Republican Party.”
During the September 16 debate, Jindal slammed the Senate Republicans for their weakness in the face of Democrats. Especially on the Senate’s inability to defund Planned Parenthood, even with the recent gruesome videos that have gone viral, which contain evidence that the group has for decades engaged in the illegal sale and profit from human body parts.
