Freshman House Tea Party Members Give Boehner High Marks
Despite the recent stormy congressional budget debate, Speaker of the House John Boehner is getting high praise from some freshman House Tea Party members, ABC News reports.

Despite the recent stormy congressional budget debate, Speaker of the House John Boehner is getting high praise from some freshman House Tea Party members, ABC News reports.
 
Reporter Jonathan Karl sat down recently with Reps. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.), Bobby Schilling (R-Ill.), Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) and Frank Guinta (R-N.H.). When asked to grade the Speaker’s leadership over the first 100 days of the 112th Congress, Ellmers, Gosar and Guinta gave Boehner an “A” while Schilling gave him an “A-minus.”
 
Here are a few notable quotes from the roundtable:
 
Rep. Ellmers:
“I think he’s doing a tremendous job. In fact, it hurts my feelings sometimes when I hear people criticize him because we know him to be completely committed, completely conservative, and a very hard working gentleman.”
 
Rep. Schilling:
“I think for being our leader, I think he’s an awesome guy to have there doing the negotiations.”
 
All four expressed frustration and disappointment with the $38.5 billion budget compromise but said they ultimately learned a hard lesson in Washington politics in the process: compromise.
