Rep. Marino’s Statement on Speaker Boehner’s Resignation

September 25, 2015
Press Release

Washington D.C.—Congressman Tom Marino (PA-10) issued the following statement regarding the announcement that Speaker John Boehner will resign from the speakership and from his seat in Congress:

“I have no doubt the pundits and commentators will have a field day with this announcement but we should not forget how incredibly difficult the job of Speaker is. Speaker Boehner took that job head-on. He dealt with the extreme left and their constant demonization of Republicans’ thoughtful and responsible solutions to move our country forward – and he did so with patience. He was also instrumental to Republicans taking back the House in 2010. I was among those whom he supported and we could not have done it without his committed leadership. I wish him well in all his future endeavors.”
