PROTECTING AMERICA, DEFEATING OUR TERRORIST ENEMIES

John Boehner is fighting to make sure our armed forces have the resources they need in a timely manner. The last thing soldiers and veterans deserve is for Congress to hold their funding hostage to inside-the-beltway politics. He has called on the president to allow General McChrystal to testify to Congress about our challenges and options in Afghanistan, and is a cosponsor of the Keep Terrorists Out of America Act which would prevent terrorists housed at Guantanamo Bay from being transferred or released into American communities.

Boehner believes defending America and providing our brave men and women with the tools they need to defeat our terrorist enemies is the most solemn duty of the federal government.
