Boehner: We’ll take Churchill bust in the Capitol

Boehner’s resolution notes that Dec. 26 is the 70th anniversary of Churchill’s joint speech to Congress, and that Churchill was made an honorary citizen of the United States in 1963 and given the Congressional Gold Medal in 1969.

“[T]he United Kingdom remains and will forever be an important and irreplaceable ally to the United States,” the resolution reads.

The resolution, H.Res. 497, will be considered under a suspension of House rules, requiring a two-thirds majority vote.
