Boehner Says Election Won't Effect Budget Stance

Speaker John Boehner suggested that "candidates and personalities - not Republican proposals on Medicare and spending cuts - contributed to Republican losses in November, as he vowed to press forward with a House budget plan that renews the push to shrink the government," the New York Times reports.

In short, Boehner said "the election losses would not deter his party from pressing its vision of reducing the size of government and turning government health care programs largely over to the private sector."

Said Boehner: "There are a lot of things that decide an election, especially the two candidates that you have, the personalities that they have, positions they have taken."
