Boehner says his 'pretty good relationship' with Obama has grown 'a little frosty' lately
WASHINGTON (AP) ' House Speaker John Boehner says his relationship with one-time golf partner President Barack Obama has grown "a little frosty."
The Ohio Republican complains in an interview with ABC's "This Week" that Obama is engaging in what Boehner calls "class warfare" by pushing for higher taxes for wealthy Americans.
Boehner says the rich pay enough taxes and it's wrong for the president to "pit one set of Americans against another."
Boehner says he and Obama have had a good relationship in the past, but it has grown cool in the last few weeks.
The Republican speaker and Democratic president played a round of golf together last summer in a mostly futile effort to bridge the ever-widening gap between the two political parties.
