House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, couldn’t restrain his sense of incredulity when a reporter asked him whether Americans were better off today than they were when President Barack Obama took office.

“Are you kidding me?!” Boehner exclaimed, according to The Hill. “Why don’t you go ask the 14 million Americans who are out of work whether they’re better off today than they were four years ago?”

The reporter’s question was prompted by comments Obama made in an interview with WCCO TV of Minneapolis-St. Paul.

The president was asked the same question and replied, “Well, you know, I think we are better off now than we would have been if I hadn’t taken all the steps we took. I don’t think the country is stronger yet than it was when the economy was still booming and we didn’t have Wall Street crisis, and we didn’t have the housing bubble burst. But, we’ve made steady progress; we just need to make more.”
