With Boehner's Resignation, Who Are the Real Losers?

John Boehner's Last Deal (Molly Ball) from the Atlantic
"The House speaker’s resignation symbolizes the frustration of the GOP’s governing wing.  "
"If he had a constituency at all, it was the ever-more-powerless Beltway Establishment, its own isolated and isolating club. ... His resignation is the ultimate frustration of the GOP's status-quo-oriented business wing. ... There are two rules of John Boehner, John Lawrence, a former chief of staff to Nancy Pelosi, told me recently: One, he always wants to make the deal; two, he can never deliver the votes for the deal."
