In 2012, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) continued to focus on building a stronger economy and brighter future for our kids and grandkids.  In between floor debates and press conferences were small moments shared with colleagues, staff, and visitors from around the world.  This set of photos, including several newly released images, takes you behind the scenes with Speaker Boehner, a self-described “regular guy with a big job.”

As always, you can see the latest photos of Speaker Boehner on FlickrFacebook, and here on Speaker.gov.
