WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today in response to comments made by Minority Leader John Boehner on Friday:
 
“I was disappointed to hear of Minority Leader Boehner’s inappropriate comments regarding Speaker Pelosi.  Republicans are clearly frustrated that the American public is not buying their Johnny-one-note energy policies of the past, but such comments are harmful to a useful debate over our nation’s future.  I hope the Minority Leader will apologize for his remarks, and work with Democrats in a bipartisan, constructive manner to increase our domestic oil supply, invest in renewable energy and end our dependence on foreign oil.”
