Since Moscow Mitch has been nothing but an obstructionist since 2008, we have all forgotten how bad John Boehner was. Before he was the Speaker of the House, he actually passed out checks from tobacco companies to people in the House in order to secure their votes.
In case you are wondering what happened to Mr. Boehner, you'll be happy to know that in September 2016, Squire Patton Boggs, the third largest lobbying firm in the U.S., announced that Boehner would join their firm. It was also announced that Boehner would become a board member of Reynolds American, the second biggest tobacco firm in the U.S., for an estimated annual salary of $400,000. When he was Speaker, his salary was $223,500. His pension is roughly $ 86,600, which means he is making nearly $500,000 a year in his "retirement years".
