(CNN) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she feels a "spirit of pride" thinking back over the new administration's first 100 days, but House Minority Leader John Boehner said it's become clear to him that the idea of bipartisanship "was a ruse."
"I think if you look at the first 100 days, you can sum it up pretty simply: spending, taxing, borrowing and ducking the hard choices," Boehner said at a news conference Thursday.
Democratic policies, he said, are "going to hurt our economy and hurt jobs in America."
The Ohio Republican said Americans are "fed up with this unprecedented level of spending and borrowing that'll imprison the future for our kids and their kids," and he said the Republican Party has offered up better solutions in recent months.
"And as we get into these next few months, you'll see us continue to work to be the party of better solutions," he said.
