At a press conference with Republican leaders today, Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) discussed House Republicans' ongoing efforts to help grow our economy, unleash American energy and help hardworking families. Following are Congressman Boehner's remarks:
"You know, last week was a rough week for our nation. But I think our law enforcement officials at every level did a very outstanding job of working together and doing their best to keep America safe.
"In the House, we're continuing to work on the American people's priorities: growing our economy and stopping policies that hurt American families and hurt our economy. We want to expand American energy production. We want to help parents balance the demands of work and their families. And we want to address Washington's spending problem. Our goal here is to help create jobs and expand opportunities for all Americans, and that's where we will continue to be focused."
