FW Statement: Boehner vs. the House Freedom Caucus

FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented on Speaker John Boehner’s interview with Politico:

"John Boehner needs to realize that the House Freedom Caucus is trying to fight for smaller government and protect our freedoms. It’s great that Boehner says he came to Washington to fight for smaller government, but that’s not what his record shows."

"Boehner should be working with Members that stand on principle and don’t want to break the spending caps. He doesn’t have a leg to stand on when he claims their criticism is laughable, when he capitulates to everything President Obama says."

"Our 6.9 million members know that Congress is broken and want a leader that is ready to fight for them. Why can Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi lead from the minority, but Boehner and his cronies can’t even fight for us from the majority?"
