“We ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal,” Boehner says in an interview scheduled to be aired on CBS “Face the Nation” on Sunday.
Responding to a question about how little Congress is doing when it comes to passing laws to help the nation, Boehner said the House of Representatives that his party controls with an iron hand “should not be judged by how many laws we create.”
Typical Boehner. He often maintains, the measure for success should be how many laws Congress can get rid of, especially any laws created since Barack Obama became President.
Under Boehner’s questionable leadership, the House of Representatives had passed more than one attempt to repeal Obamacare, a wasted effort that always fails to pass the Senate.
Such actions, Boehner claims, is what Congress should be doing.
Boehner claims America has “more laws than the administration could ever enforce.”
He admits his view may be unpopular because this country has a divided government. Boehner says he and his allies in Congress are fighting for what they believe in. And he adds — quote — “Sometimes the American people don’t like this mess.
He failed to admit, however, that his “leadership” in the House created much of the mess that is the hallmark of his party.
