Stumping for re-election at a Rotary Club in his home district, House Speaker John Boehner mocked GOP colleagues on their reluctance to tackle immigration reform, reports Cincinatti.com. “We get elected to make choices. We get elected to solve problems,” Boehner said. “And it’s remarkable to me how many of my colleagues just don’t want to … They’ll take the path of least resistance.” Boehner went on to say it’s too late to just repeal ObamaCare, Republicans have to offer an actual replacement, reports Roll Call.
