House Speaker John Boehner said Sunday that President Obama’s policies were the “politics of envy” and warned that if Obama did not work with Congress to create jobs, he would not be re-elected in November.
“The president doubled down on the same failed policies that have not worked. Matter of fact, they have made the economy worse -- higher taxes, more spending, more regulation. What I’m talking about here is the politics of dividing America, the politics of envy. This is not the American way,” he said in an interview on ABC’s This Week.
“And, you know, if the president won’t work with us to help create jobs, I’m sure the American people will elect someone who will,” he said.
