>>> house speaker john boehner says this current congress "should not be judged on how many new laws we create." rather, he said, "we ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal." of course, that's been a rallying cry of many in his caucus. the speaker also refuses to take a position on immigration because he says it will make it harder to come to agreement on a bill. he said his job is, instead, to facilitate a process.
