Think about this: 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 that we repeal."
It's just embarrassing. Within hours of his interview, Boehner's remarks were making headlines across the country—and even overseas. 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. We didn't put them in office to sit there and wind back the clock.
All next month, while our members of Congress are home on recess, we'll be holding Action August events and making our voices heard. I'm asking you to help make sure they go back to Washington with a message for John Boehner.
