“I do know this, I’m doing this today, for the right reasons, and you know what? The right things will happen as a result," Boehner said during a press conference on Friday.
In a surprise move, House Speaker John Boehner will resign from Congress at the end of October.
“Last night I started thinking about this, and this morning I woke up, and I said my prayers as I always do. And I decided, you know, today’s the day I’m going to do this. As simple as that.”
