In an interview with The Hill, Boehner said, “If we gain the majority and I am Speaker, I’m going to run the House differently than it’s being run today and I’m going to run it differently than my Republican predecessors ran it.”
Asked how his term would contrast with former Speaker Dennis Hastert’s (R-Ill.) tenure, Boehner looked his questioner in the eye and said, “It’ll be different…It’s time to get really serious about fiscal responsibility. Not just talk about it, but deliver.”
He also stresses transparency, vowing to put all bills online 72 hours before they are voted on.
The fact that Boehner is even talking about the possibility of calling the shots in the House is remarkable.
