Contrarians a Rare Find in Either House Party
U.S. House Speaker John Boehner rarely votes on the floor. When the Ohio Republican did cast a vote this year, there were only nine Democrats who sided with him more than 50 percent of the time. Three members of Boehner’s own party voted against him more than 50 percent of the time.
