7/29 @ 10:00 AM ET | GOP Leadership Press Conference - WATCH LIVE HERE

WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) released the following statement regarding the president’s address this afternoon:

“It’s a shame that the president could not manage to rise above partisanship today.  Instead, he should be working in a bipartisan way to address America’s spending problem -- the way presidents of both parties have done before.  He should work with us to delay his health care law for everyone – just as he’s done for big businesses – expand energy production, simplify our tax code, and more.  The president is right that we’re ‘not yet where we need to be,’ which is why Republicans will stay focused on growing our economy and expanding opportunity for all Americans.”
