Dedicated To Restoring Our Government to Citizens' Control

Statement of Citizens United President David N. Bossie on John Boehner’s Resignation

Speaker Boehner’s retirement announcement is a victory for grassroots conservatives. Under Boehner’s leadership Congress has failed to advance meaningful reforms, much less the bold conservative reforms our country needs. The writing has been on the wall for quite some time now, and as a conservative, I’m excited at the prospect of electing new conservative leadership in the House of Representatives. As the Obama administration comes to a close it’s more important than ever that we have leaders in Congress who are willing to stand up and fight against his liberal agenda.

Citizens United’s legislative message over the coming days and months stays the same: Planned Parenthood must not be funded, budget caps must stay in place, and the Export-Import Bank must remain expired.
