American response in Syria
- See also: United States involvement in Syria
Boehner supported President Barack Obama's proposed military strikes against Syria. He stated, "The use of these weapons has to be responded to and only the United States has the capability and the capacity to stop Assad and to warn others around the world that this type of behavior is not to be tolerated."
NSA surveillance programs amendment
The U.S. House of Representatives voted on July 24, 2013, to narrowly defeat an amendment brought by Justin Amash meant to halt the National Security Agency's bulk collection of surveillance data. The amendment would have stripped funding for an NSA program that collects the telephone records of people in the United States but not the content of calls.
The vote scrambled the usual ideological fault lines in the House, with conservative Republicans siding with liberal Democrats. The House voted 205-217 to defeat the amendment with more Democrats than Republicans voting in favor of the amendment. From Amash's own party, 134 Republicans voted against the amendment, with only 94 agreeing with it, while 111 Democrats voted for the amendment, with 83 voting against.
Among the Republicans opposing the measure was Michele Bachmann. Bachmann defended the NSA's data collection programs, arguing that "there’s no Fourth Amendment expectation of privacy or right to the business-record exception" concerning the collection of phone metadata. She continued by saying, “If we take this program and remove from the United States the distinct advantage that we have versus any other country, it will be those who are seeking to achieve the goals of Islamic jihad who will benefit by putting the United States at risk, and it will be the United States which will be at risk. I believe that we need to win the War on Terror. We need to defeat the goals and aims of Islamic jihad, and for that reason I will be voting no on the Amash amendment.” Bachmann was joined by, among others, Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor in opposing the amendment.
On July 24, 2013, the House overwhelmingly passed a separate NSA amendment put forward by Rep. Mike Pompeo that was intended as a middle ground but was blasted by civil liberties advocates as achieving nothing. The measure ensured that the NSA cannot acquire or store the content of emails and phone calls of people in the United States, but it allowed the NSA to continue storing phone metadata.

In January 2014, Boehner said he believed supply management would be successfully left out of the farm bill in 2014. He said, “I have fought off the supply management ideas for 23 years that I’ve been in Congress, and my position hasn’t changed. Mr. Peterson and others are aware of that."

On September 30, 2013, the House passed a final stopgap spending bill before the shutdown went into effect. The bill included a one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate and would have also stripped the bill of federal subsidies for congressional members and staff. It passed through the House with a vote of 228-201. At 1 a.m. on October 1, 2013, one hour after the shutdown officially began, the House voted to move forward with going to a conference. In short order, Sen. Harry Reid rejected the call to conference. Boehner voted in favor of the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.
The shutdown finally ended on October 16, 2013, when the House took a vote on HR 2775 after it was approved by the Senate. The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funded the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies. The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from Republican members. Boehner voted for HR 2775.
Boehner released a statement on September 29, 2013, blasting Senate Democratic leaders over the looming shutdown. He said, "If the Senate stalls until Monday afternoon instead of working today, it would be an act of breathtaking arrogance by the Senate Democratic leadership. They will be deliberately bringing the nation to the brink of a government shutdown for the sake of raising taxes on seniors’ pacemakers and children’s hearing aids and plowing ahead with the train wreck that is the president’s health care law. The American people will not stand for it." While Boehner attempted to shift blame for a potential shutdown on Senate Democrats, a CNN poll found that 46% of Americans blamed congressional Republicans.
Boehner refused his pay for the duration of the shutdown.
Previous congressional sessions
Boehner voted for the fiscal cliff compromise bill, which made permanent most of the Bush tax cuts originally passed in 2001 and 2003 while also raising tax rates on the highest income levels. He was 1 of 85 Republicans that voted in favor of the bill. The bill was passed in the House by a 257 - 167 vote on January 1, 2013.

Boehner has a "passive-aggressive" leadership style. He uses, "a passive-aggressive approach to agenda management—wait to bring up bills that will not pass muster with the extremist hard-liners until it becomes clear that they all will suffer from inaction; this allows his members to vote against the bills while the Democrats bail them out." He also works to "mollify his extremist hard-liners. That is, get out in front of them and promote or pursue extremist policies and rhetoric to show he is one of them." While on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, in January 2014, Boehner commented further on his leadership and challenges. He said, “Some members, I have to be the big brother figure. Some, I have to be the father figure. Others, I have to be the dean of students or the principal. Some of them, I have to be the Gestapo." He also added, "I like to describe my job as trying to get 218 frogs in a wheelbarrow long enough to pass a bill. It’s hard to do."
In January 2014, Boehner appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He told Leno, "Listen, I like to play golf. I like to cut my own grass. You know, I do drink red wine. I smoke cigarettes. And I'm not giving that up to be president of the United States." Boehner also insisted his skin tone is all natural and that he does not use tanning beds or spray tans. He also addressed his thoughts on the October 2013 shutdown. He said, "When I looked up, I saw my colleagues going this way. And you learn that a leader without followers is simply a man taking a walk. So I said, 'You want to fight this fight? I'll go fight the fight with you.' But it was a very predictable disaster. The sooner we got it over with, the better." Boehner briefly mentioned 2016, adding he thought his friend, Jeb Bush, would make a good president, but stopped short of endorsing him.
Endorsement of Mike Simpson
House Speaker Boehner attended a fundraiser luncheon on August 26, 2013, to help his friend and colleague Mike Simpson in his bid for a ninth term. Boehner and Simpson were joined by Republican Gov. Butch Otter in making remarks to the luncheon crowd.
Response to Putin's op-ed
In September 2013, Russia's President Vladimir Putin wrote an opinion piece in The New York Times arguing that the Syrian government was not responsible for the use of chemical weapons. In response, Boehner stated that he was "insulted" by Putin's editorial, further elaborating:
- "The president does foreign policy and I’ve always believed while we have opinions, I probably already said more than I should have, but you got the truth."
Boehner commented on the debate over extending unemployment benefits. He said, "One month ago I personally told the White House that another extension of temporary emergency unemployment benefits should not only be paid for but include something to help put people back to work. To date, the president has offered no such plan. If he does, I’ll be happy to discuss it, but right now the House is going to remain focused on growing the economy and giving America’s unemployed the independence that only comes from finding a good job."
Military aircraft travel
In October 2013, a rule against members of Congress traveling on expensive military aircraft was waived for a delegation of thirty House members, including Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, to attend the funeral of longtime Florida Congressman Bill Young. The flight time cost was estimated at $10,000 per hour. A spokesman for Boehner told the Washington Post, "Given Rep. Young’s long and distinguished service to his congressional district, and especially to the men and women of our Armed Forces, the rule against military aircraft is waived for this funeral." The rule was also waived for two other funerals earlier this year.
Trey Radel arrested for cocaine possession
- See also: Trey Radel#Controversy
Florida's 19th Congressional District Rep. Trey Radel (R) was arrested in the District of Columbia on October 29, 2013, for possession of cocaine. He was officially charged on November 19, 2013, in D.C. Superior Court with misdemeanor possession of cocaine. On Wednesday, November 20, 2013, Radel plead guilty to possession of cocaine. He was sentenced to one year of supervised probation.
Boehner commented on the incident saying, "Members of Congress should be held to the highest standards, and the alleged crime will be handled by the courts. Beyond that, this is between Rep. Radel, his family, and his constituents."
Lawsuit against the Obama Administration
On June 24, 2014, Boehner confirmed to reporters at a press conference that he planned to initiate a lawsuit against President Obama over the president's use of executive orders. During the press conference, he also indicated that in July he would bring a bill to the House floor authorizing a Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG) to file the lawsuit against the President.
In a June 2014 memo to House members announcing the vote needed to authorize BLAG, Boehner indicated that the legal action would cover a number of issues -- including health care law, energy regulations, foreign policy and education -- but did not cite specific cases of executive overreach.

- See also: Personal Gain Index (U.S. Congress)
The Personal Gain Index (U.S. Congress) is a four-part measurement that illustrates the extent to which members of the U.S. Congress have prospered during their tenure as public servants.
It consists of four different metrics pioneered by the Government Accountability Institute:
- Changes in Net Worth
- The K-Street Metric
- The Donation Concentration Metric
- The Stock Oversight and Trades Metric
PGI: Change in net worth
Based on congressional financial disclosure forms and calculations made available by OpenSecrets.org, Boehner's net worth as of 2012 was estimated between $1,914,122 to $5,935,000. That averages to $3,924,561, which is lower than the average net worth of Republican House members in 2012 of $7,614,097.96. Boehner ranked as the 90th most wealthy representative in 2012. Between 2004 and 2012, Boehner's calculated net worth increased by an average of 2 percent per year. Between 2004 and 2012, the average annual percentage increase for a member of Congress was 15.4 percent.
|John Boehner Yearly Net Worth|
|Year||Average Net Worth|
|Growth from 2004 to 2012:||19%|

Lifetime voting record
According to the website GovTrack, Boehner missed 512 of 12,774 roll call votes from January 1991 to March 2013, which is 4.0% of votes during that period. This is worse than the median of 2.2% among the lifetime records of representatives currently serving.
113th Congress Speaker of the House Election
During the swearing in ceremony and election for Speaker of the House, Boehner saw nine Republican members of Congress either vote for someone else or abstain and vote present. This is a change from the Speaker election in 2010, when the entire Republican caucus voted for him, then 241 members. Boehner won re-election to the speakership with 220 votes. He needed a majority of members voting, which was 214 of the 426 who voted. Former Speaker and California representative Nancy Pelosi (D) in turn, received 192 votes.
The nine Republican members who voted for someone other than Boehner included Justin Amash, Steve Pearce, Jim Bridenstine, Ted Yoho, Paul Broun, Louie Gohmert, Walter Jones, Thomas Massie and Tim Huelskamp. Not all members who voted for someone other the Boehner or Pelosi voted for a current member of the U.S. House. Out-going member Allen West, former Comptroller General David Walker and former Secretary of State Colin Powell all received votes. This highlights the fact that the speaker does not have to be a member of the U.S. House, although all previous speakers have been.
Congressional staff salaries
The website Legistorm compiles staff salary information for members of Congress. Boehner paid his congressional staff a total of $951,055 in 2011. Overall, Ohio ranked 30th in average salary for representative staff. The average U.S. House of Representatives congressional staff was paid $954,912.20 in fiscal year 2011.
