Rep. John Boehner (R- Ohio), the House Minority Leader, gave a speech this afternoon, Friday, Oct. 8, in West Chester on jobs and about the Republican Party. The speech received coverage from numerous members of the local and national media and was held in a warehouse section of United Group Services, which is a piping manufacturer in West Chester.
Boehner, who is in line to become Speaker of the House if Republicans win enough seats in November, began the speech by talking about his prior work experience at his nearby dad’s tavern and as a representative for manufacturers in the packaging and plastics community.

However, the possible future Speaker of the House got to the point early.
“Let me be crystal clear, if it isn’t clear already: This speech is about jobs,” Boehner said. “And this speech is about jobs, because this coming election is about jobs.
“It’s about the jobs that were promised to the American people by the current administration, and never delivered.”
Boehner also questioned the work of the Obama administration and of current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“Small businesses, the engine of job creation in America, are gripped by uncertainty. Under President Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Washington has been throwing everything at them but the kitchen sink,” Boehner said.
“That’s what you got for your $787 billion dollars. Record high unemployment. A bigger government and an economy struggling to create jobs.”
The speech got quite the reaction from his supporters. Boehner received his biggest cheer when he said, “there’s a plan to repeal Obamacare and replace it with common-sense reforms.”
The crowd also erupted at his conclusion.
“Ladies and gentlemen, your government hasn’t been listening,” Boehner said before concluding his speech.
“Your government is disrespecting you, your family, your job, your children. Your government is out of control. Do you have to accept it? Do you have to take it? Hell no, you don’t!”
