House Speaker John Boehner admitted he may “rib people a little too much” but said he was not mocking his fellow Republicans when he inferred his caucus was a pouty bunch of lawmakers too afraid to address immigration reform. There was no mocking, you know me,” the Republican leader said Tuesday. I wanted to make sure members understood that the biggest impediment we have to moving immigration reform is the American people don't trust the president to enforce or implement the law that we may or may not pass.”
