Communications • September 25, 2015

Washington, D.C. – Today Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement following the announcement that John Boehner will resign as Speaker of the House:

“John Boehner was the right man at the right time. Under his leadership the Republicans reached their strongest majority in 80 years, cut spending by $2.1 trillion, enacted the first major entitlement reform in nearly 20 years, and protected 99% of Americans from a permanent tax increase.

“He is trustworthy and led in a fair, decisive way.

“He is a great American who always supported me and visited Eastern Washington many times. I am grateful for his leadership and proud to call him a friend.”
