After House Speaker John Boehner has announced his plan to resign from Congress at the end of October he tweeted:

 

Speaking publicly for the first time since news of his resignation surfaced today, Boehner said in a news conference “this isn’t about me. It’s about the people and the institution.”

Boehner explained the decision on the impression Pope Francis left on him during the pontiff’s Thursday visit to the Capitol.

“This morning I woke up and I said my prayers as I always do and I said, ‘today, I’m going to do this, ‘ and that was that, ” Boehner said. “I would not describe it as ‘having had enough.'”

He added “turmoil churning for months” as hastening his exit.
