Suggested Questions for Boehner Press Conference

With Speaker Boehner and Reps. Mica and Hastings set to discuss a long-term surface transportation bill at a press conference this morning, we here in the Democratic Whip Press Shop wanted to offer up a few suggested questions to pose for the lawmakers:

1.) After 11 months in the majority, why have Republicans still not come up with a comprehensive jobs plan?

2.) If Republicans are focused on infrastructure as you claim, why did Senate Republicans block a bill that contained provisions of the American Jobs Act that would have invested in infrastructure and created jobs?
