Boehner: 'Our Goal Here Is to Fund Department of Homeland Security'

( - House Republicans say they are eager to pass a bill to fully fund the Department of Homeland Security, as long as no funding goes to President Obama's vastly expanded immigration program.

At a news conference Tuesday morning, House speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said, "This is actually not about the issue of immigration. This is about the president acting lawlessly...Listen, our goal here is to fund the Department of Homeland Security.

"Our second goal is to stop the president's executive overreach. This is not the way our government was intended to work. The president said 22 times that he didn't have the authority to do what he eventually did. He knows -- he knows the truth here, and so do the American people. And our job is to listen to the American people and hold the president accountable."

A better goal would be to abolish the department of homeland security.

I get so tired of listening to this guy anymore. Typical political game plan. Talk tuff at the microphone and do nothing once the camera disappears.
