Boehner: Obama Can Take Executive Action, But He Can't Change the Law
House Speaker John Boehner spoke to Maria Bartiromo in an exclusive, wide-ranging "Sunday Morning Futures" interview.
Boehner rejected the notion that the GOP-controlled Congress hasn't accomplished much in its first 100 days, pointing to numerous bills that have been passed by the House but are still waiting for the Senate.
Boehner also weighed in on U.S. relations with Cuba, saying that Cuba hasn't done enough to justify President Obama removing the country from the list of state sponsors of terror.
"The president keeps giving and giving and giving, and I want to see what the Castro brothers are giving. They've done nothing," Boehner said. "I think this is unwise, unhelpful and will lead to almost nowhere."
"Presidents have the ability to take executive action, but they don’t have the ability to change the law."
Boehner said that Obama also clearly overreached with his executive action on immigration and changes to ObamaCare.
As for Hillary Clinton entering the 2016 race, Boehner wondered what she's going to do for America and asserted that her various scandals will continue to dog her throughout the campaign process.
