WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 16: Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) (R) walks through the Captiol Visitors Center on his way to a news conference May 16, 2013 in Washington, DC. On top of calling for the repeal of Obamacare, Boehner fielded questions from reporters about the Obama Administrations' subpoena of AP phone records, the IRS scrutiny of conservative political groups' applications for tax exemption and other issues.
The House remains committed to fixing our broken immigration system, but we will not simply take up and accept the bill that is emerging in the Senate if it passes
We are going to continue to seek answers until we get to the truth. The administration hasn’t been upfront with the American people about Benghazi. They’re suggesting that reporters are criminals for doing their jobs. And we can’t get a straight answer from them on the IRS.More quotes »
