No, Boehner has actually been very consistent in saying that. He just doesn't do it. I tend to grant him some benefit of the doubt and say it's because the TP won't allow it, but maybe he's really just blowing smoke too.

The PPACA is not a job-killing bill. A nice little Faux News sound-bite, but not based on reality.

And, no, the House didn't pass a single jobs bill. They say they did, but economists have said that none actually were. It's almost a game with them labeling practically everything a "jobs bill" (e.g. requiring American-made steel in public water systems was a "jobs bill"...yeah, right...I believe this is one of the tabled bills). They probably regarded their 30+ attempts to repeal the PPACA as "jobs bills" too.
