WASHINGTON – Yesterday House Speaker John Boehner told “Face the Nation”‘s Bob Schieffer that Congress “should not be judged by how many new laws we create, but on how many laws we repeal.”
“I know this view is unpopular, and we may be constantly accused of not doing much, but when has that ever stopped us?”
Boehner went on to suggest that if it weren’t for the citizens of the United States, Congress would have a higher approval rating.
“They constantly think that what we do is for them, for their benefit,” said Boehner. “It is this mass delusion that hurts our jobs and reputations. Where they got this whole idea of us working for them, I have no idea. It’s not like it’s written anywhere.”
Many colleagues of Boehner have expressed their agreement with the House Speaker, citing that “the next big law we actually should create is the the abolishment of polls.”
If people didn’t know what they really thought of us, it would be a real step in the right direction,” said Senator Mitch McConnell.
