Speaker Boehner: Pillars of a Renewed Majority

Today, Speaker Boehner released Pillars of a Renewed Majority, which details his five-point vision for resetting the foundation of our economy and the steps the House Republican majority is taking to make it a reality.

“Over the last four years, the House has served as an outpost in Washington for the people’s priorities," Boehner writes in the introduction.  “With a renewed majority, we renew that mission, and pledge to focus on good-paying jobs and an economy strong enough to help keep the American Dream alive and well."
