Boehner to Give September Jobs Speech

Fox News has learned that House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, will give a speech on jobs and the economy to the Economic Club of Washington on Sept. 15.

This is an address akin to one the speaker gave in May in New York.

Boehner's September speech was planned before the kerfuffle yesterday on the president's request to give his jobs speech before a Joint Session of Congress. But it was always intended to be a response to the address president planned to give in early September, regardless of the forum.
