The Honorable John Boehner

Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives | September 15, 2011
Outlined his vision for resolving the economic and jobs crisis gripping the country.

Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner used his time at the Economic Club on September 15 to deliver a major speech outlining his vision of the course that must be adopted to resolve the economic and job crisis currently gripping the country.  In his remarks, Speaker Boehner focused on a theme of liberating “America’s economy from government policies that are stifling private-sector job creation.”  He also attacked what he deemed “short-term fixes and gimmicks that are labeled ‘job creation’ by politicians, but which actually impede economic growth.”  The Speaker gave this speech just one week after President Obama addressed a joint session of Congress to present his plan for confronting the same challenges.
