A reporter asked Boehner whether his members support the GOP budget, which includes a plan to give seniors vouchers to buy insurance in a private marketplace. He offered less than a full-throated defense.

"I think it's an option worth considering," Boehner said. "I think our members are in full support of us continuing to march forward with our budget."
