House Speaker John Boehner says Congress "should not be judged on how many new laws we create" but on "how many laws … we repeal."

The Ohio Republican's remarks were part of an interview that aired Sunday on CBS' Face the Nation in which he was asked why Congress had accomplished so little.

The country already has "more laws than the administration ever could enforce," Boehner said.
