Politico reports:

Incoming House Speaker John Boehner is hosting a summit Wednesday with 15 newly elected Republican governors to talk about spending cuts and jobs.

It’s Boehner’s most recent overture to governors, as both federal and state governments wrestle with huge budget deficits. Topping the summit’s list will be repealing health care overhaul legislation – the incoming speaker’s office likened the GOP’s strategy of working with governors to repeal the law to the 1996 welfare reforms.

“Washington doesn't have all the answers, and the best solutions usually come from outside the Beltway,” Boehner said.
