Boehner Says GOP Will Lead But Backs Away from Votes

Speaker John Boehner attacked President Obama for intending to "pack it in for the year" and said Republicans would, by contrast, demonstrate leadership by presenting an alternative vision to the country, The Hill reports.

Said Boehner: "We'll lead and our members will not shy away from advancing better solutions for the American people."

"But when pressed on whether the House would actually hold votes on major legislation in 2014, the Speaker quickly backed away, and wouldn't commit to anything more than continued 'conversations' in the coming month."
