Boehner: Obama’s Climate Change Proposal ‘Absolutely Crazy’


Speaker John Boehner slammed President Obama's climate change proposal during his weekly press conference Thursday, calling it "absolutely crazy."

News broke this week the Obama administration is considering aggressive regulations of power plants and carbon dioxide emissions. Boehner castigated the idea as a job-killer.

"I think this is absolutely crazy," he said. "Why would you want to increase the cost of energy and kill more American jobs at a time when the American people are still asking the question, ‘Where are the jobs?'

"Clear enough?" he added to his questioner.

Obama discussed climate change policy during his poorly-reviewed speech in Berlin Wednesday, saying "We will do more."
