Boehner Praises Porter For Tough "yes"

Minority Leader John Boehner made a special point of thanking Nevada Rep. Jon Porter, who's fighting for his political life, for voting yes twice this week.

Porter, who represents the foreclosure-wracked Vegas suburbs, trails Democrat Dina Titus in recent polls.

“I applaud Congressman Porter for making this a better bill for the American taxpayer. Through his hard work, Congress and the nation will be better able to learn the lessons of the current crisis and will find new ways to protect the homes and savings of taxpayers in the future,” Boehner said.
