Looking back, who has won Chris Cillizza’s worst week in Washington?
After his "Plan B" for avoiding the fiscal cliff failed, Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) faced questions about whether he could remain Speaker of the House. "On Wednesday, the House speaker publicly promised that he and his colleagues would pass legislation preserving the current tax rates for everyone earning less than $1 million," Chris Cillizza writes in "John Boehner's worst week in Washington." "On Thursday, Boehner failed to even get the bill to the House floor — admitting in a news release that the legislation simply lacked the votes to be passed. Gut punch." J. Scott Applewhite/AP
