    Did you hear what John Boehner said?

    Yesterday, the speaker of the House went on national TV and said that Congress "should not be judged on how many new laws we create," but rather on "how many laws ... we repeal."

     Within hours of his interview, Boehner's remarks were making headlines across the country -- and even overseas.

    I thought we elected our members of Congress to work on the issues we care about: creating jobs, fixing our immigration system, fighting climate change, and passing laws to reduce gun violence.

    I did not think we put them in office to sit there and wind back the clock.

    It's a quantity vs. quality issue. Repealing bad law is a very good thing.

    SB,

    Biggest problem here is while they concentrate on repealing all those laws, they are not concentrating on the issues I posted.

    Issues such as creatings jobs, fixing our immigration system, fighting climate change and passing laws to combat gun violence for example.

    I do not vote to this this one or that to Congress to repeal laws. I vote to send them to do what Congress is suppose to do. 

    John Boehner does not understand his job. IMO, he may be the weakest Speaker of the House ever. It does not help that the man is afraid of his own party.

    I doubt he's trying to be judged on the DADT repeal.

    In order to repeal a law, Congress is required to pass legislation that addresses that law, so what is he even talking about?

    More red meat for the civics illiterate base.

    Here is a real civics lesson for the liberal state-worshippers who hope against hope that the corrupt incompetent public sector will pass more laws to "create jobs" and fix problems..

    "The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the State" -Tacitus, Roman general

    "Government doesnt solve problems, it subsidizes them" -Reagan

    “Man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” --Ronald Reagan

    "That government is best which governs least" ...anonymous

    I stopped caring about what Boehner said a long time ago. When he first became speaker..I was actually excited..in a political sense. I thought he'd do a good job. However, it seems both he and I underestimated the power of the tea party.

    This Congress and the one before it will be remembered for a very long time. Unfortunately..not for a good reason. They will be remembered for their complete inabillity to accomplish..well...anything and Boehner may go down in history as one of the weakest speakers ever.

    Andie,

    I think that all federal laws should have a 30 year expiration on them. Only laws that are passed by a unanimous vote in both houses of Congress should never expire.

    We need to find a way to keep them focused more on the things that really matter and less on getting themselves re-elected. And maybe find a way to make them abide by their own laws.

    That would be good.
