McConnell, Boehner: Helping a Struggling Middle Class Is GOP’s Priority

November 6, 2014

Fresh out of an historic victory in which Republicans swept control of both the House and Senate, House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell say they are focused on the needs of the middle class, and plan to make jobs and the economy their first priority.

In an editorial in The Wall Street Journal, the leaders set out a detailed legislative agenda, mentioning first a renewed commitment to repeal Obamacare.

“Americans have entrusted Republicans with control of both the House and Senate. We are humbled by this opportunity to help struggling middle-class Americans who are clearly frustrated by an increasing lack of opportunity, the stagnation of wages, and a government that seems incapable of performing even basic tasks,” they wrote.

They noted that as a “sensible and obvious first step,” they plan to advance many of the bills that were passed in the GOP-controlled House that had never been on the table for consideration when Democrats controlled the Senate.
