Boehner on Nuclear Option: ‘Sounds Like Harry Reid Is Trying To Change The Subject’


Asked about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s push to eliminate the upper chamber’s filibuster for judicial nominees, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told reporters at his weekly press conference that he thought Reid was “trying to change the subject” from the troubled rollout of Obamacare.

“Sounds to me like Harry Reid is trying to change the subject,” he said. “If I were taking all the incoming fire he’s taking under Obamacare, I’d try to change the subject, too.”
