  • Boehner To Obama: "We've Done Our Job"

    House Speaker John Boehner is giving little ground to President Obama and his fellow Democrats on Capitol Hill on key issues, blaming Senate Democrats if the Homeland Security Department runs out of money and criticizing the president’s proposal to fight The Islamic State.
    Boehner said on “Fox News Sunday,” in an interview taped on Friday, that Senate Democrats are blocking votes on a House-passed bill that funds the agency before federal funding runs out Feb. 27, but also rolls back Obama’s executive actions on immigration.
    And the House won’t send the Senate a new bill that Senate Democrats will accept, the Ohio Republican said.
    “One more time: The House has done its job under the Constitution. It's time for the Senate to do their job,” said Boehner, who has stated his position several times since Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell raised a flag Tuesday.
