McConnell, Boehner Turn Up Rhetoric at CPAC

Chris Maddaloni/CQ Roll Call

Acknowledging his difficulties over the last year, Boehner argued the dissension within his own Conference is simply a by-product of his efforts to look to the people, not politicians.

This is not a majority full of Members willing to trade their votes away for the promise of a pork-barrel project … I make no apologies for this. Yes, things are harder. But I wouldnt have it any other way, he said.

Boehner also hammered the administrations contraception rule, vowing to block it legislatively.

Whats ultimately at stake is a First Amendment right and fundamental American value that has stood for two centuries, Boehner said, adding that one thing is for certain: This attack on religious freedom cannot and will not stand.
