Featuring Speaker John Boehner
A former small businessman, John Boehner (Bay-ner) served as Speaker of the United States House of Representatives where he led the drive for a smaller, less costly, and more accountable federal government. John got involved in state and local politics after seeing firsthand how high taxes and red tape impact entrepreneurs. Then in 1990, the voters sent John to Congress where he took a strong stand against pork-barrel spending and, as part of the “Gang of Seven,” exposed corruption in the House establishment and forced politicians to live by the same laws as everyone else.
On January 5, 2011, Boehner’s colleagues elected him to serve as Speaker of the House for the 112th Congress. Armed with the Pledge to America – a new governing agenda that reflects the priorities of the American people – Speaker Boehner focused on removing government barriers to private-sector job creation and economic growth, cutting government spending, reforming Congress, and rebuilding the bonds of trust between the American people and their representatives in Washington.
