The conservative group Heritage Action slammed Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) late Thursday for mocking Republicans who have resisted taking on immigration reform.
“It’s disappointing, but by now not surprising, that the Republican Speaker is attacking conservatives looking to retake the Senate,” Heritage Action CEO Michael A. Needham said in a statement.
Needham said the Republican Party should be large enough for “fact-based policy debates,” which he suggested Boehner isn’t interested in having.
“Unfortunately, John Boehner is more interested in advancing the agenda of high-powered DC special interests than inspiring Americans with a policy vision that allows freedom, opportunity, prosperity and civil society to flourish.”
Tensions between Boehner and conservative groups, including Heritage Action, have been high since the government shutdown last year. The speaker said last December that groups like Heritage Action have “lost all credibility.”
