Ben Carson: It's Time For New Leadership In The House

On Sunday, Ben Carson joined a group of Republican presidential candidates happy about Speaker John Boehner's resignation.

Carson said on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos," “Speaker Boehner has served our country for many years and I certainly don’t see any reason to denigrate him in any way, but it is time probably for new leadership. There’s a lot of unrest and people who really feel that a lot of people have been sent to Congress over the last few elections but nothing really has changed and they want to see some results."

On Friday, Boehner announced that he would resign in October after serving five years as Speaker. When Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) informed crowds at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, they erupted into cheers. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said, “You want to know how much each of you terrify Washington? Yesterday, John Boehner was Speaker of the House. Y’all come to town, and somehow that changes. My only request is, can you come more often?”

Carson added “[Boehner] may have served very well for that time, but this is a different time, and it’s time probably to move on."
