Congressman John Carney Statement on House Speaker Boehner's Resignation

Posted:

Rep. John Carney (D-Delaware) issued the following statement Friday following Rep. John Boehner's surprise announcement that he is resignation as speaker of the House: 

“I want to thank Speaker Boehner for his 25 years of service to our country. As Speaker, he has had an incredibly challenging job, and while we have not always agreed on policy, I have appreciated his willingness to work with me on issues that affected Delaware. Yesterday, we heard a hopeful and optimistic message from the Pope, encouraging us to work together on difficult issues. Going forward, I would like to see a Speaker who will rise to this challenge. I hope the Republican Conference elects someone willing and able to do that.”
