The problems being faced by Baltimore and other big cities are the result of 50 years of failed liberal policies, House Speaker John Boehner said in an interview aired Sunday on “Meet the Press.”
“When you look at the schools in these inner cities, these families are trapped in bad schools that don’t provide a real education and look what you get,” Boehner told host Chuck Todd in an interview taped Friday. “What we have here is 50 years of liberal policies that have not worked to help the very people we want to help. It’s time to look at all these programs and determine what’s working and what isn’t.”

Boehner said he believes there is a national crisis in the relationship between black Americans and the police, as evidenced in protests and riots in Baltimore over the past week in the wake of the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died of a spinal injury after being taken into police custody.
