John Boehner on Repeal of 14th Amendment: 'It's Worth Considering'

Rep. John Boehner has obviously been working on his tan this summer, but besides that he appeared on Meet The Press today and said a repeal of the 14th Amendment, which provides citizenship to anyone born here, is "worth considering."

Ever the politician, Boehner was non-committal on the issue, but told host David Gregory:

Well, David, I'm not the expert on this issue. [...] Listen, I think it's worth considering. But it's a serious problem that affects our country. And in certain parts of our country, clearly, our schools, our hospitals, are being overrun by illegal immigrants, a lot of whom came here just so their children could become U.S. citizens."
