Boehner Addresses President’s ‘Pen and Phone’ Comments |

At his weekly press conference today, Speaker Boehner addressed the president’s recent comments that he has a pen and a phone to assert his executive authority:

“Instead of looking to work together, the president this week reminded people that he has – quote – ‘a pen and a phone.’  I would remind the president he also has a Constitution, and an oath of office that he took where he swore to faithfully execute the laws of our country.  We have a system of government here, and a system of laws, and a Constitution that we’re all required to abide by.  No reason that this year can’t be a bipartisan year to work on the issue of our economy, and get Americans back to work.”
