House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, accompanied by fellow GOP leaders meets with reporters at Republican National Committee headquarters on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, July 15, 2014. With an August deadline looming, the House is poised to act on a bill that would temporarily patch over a multibillion-dollar pothole in federal highway and transit programs while ducking the issue of how to put the programs on sound financial footing. "Listen, these are difficult decisions in difficult times in an election year," said Boehner, defending the bill while acknowledging its limits. "The long-term problem is still there and needs to be addressed." (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
