Congressional Reform and the 'People's House'

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

An address by House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio).

The House of Representatives is known as "the people's house," but public trust in the Democrat-controlled Congress is now as low as it was in 2006, when the Republicans had a majority. According to a recent PSRA/Pew study, only 31 percent of the public want "most members of Congress reelected," while 56 percent do not. At this AEI event, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) will outline his vision of reforms that are needed to address the past failures of Democrats and Republicans alike.

See the video of the September 30, 2010, event below. Read Boehner's prepared remarks here. Find more information here.
