Boehnerâ€™s office cuts off C-SPAN cameras as GOP takes verbal beating | The Raw Story A strange thing happened Wednesday morning on Capitol Hill. As Rep. Stenny Hoyer (D-MD) attempted to call for a vote to extend a payroll tax cut to middle class and working Americans, his Republican colleagues adjourned the House and walked out of the chamber. And if that werenâ€™t odd enough, it got even stranger: As Hoyer railed against them for failing to help working Americans, footage from C-SPAN went silent, then cut away. Moments later, C-SPAN took to the Internet to explain that it wasnâ€™t their doing, but someone working for House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). what a LOSER!
