Now-former House Speaker John Boehner says that he came to Washington to fight for a smaller, less costly and more accountable government, and now that he’s leaving the House, that still hasn’t happened.

“I began to realize over the years there is no winning this fight,” Boehner said in an interview with Fox News’ Bill Hemmer on Thursday, just after his replacement, Paul Ryan, took the gavel.
The fight has been going on for over 200 years in Washington, he told Hemmer in the interview, which aired on Friday on the network’s “America’s Newsroom” program, and “it will be a constant struggle over how big should Washington be, how much should it take?”

Boehner said his biggest regret for the time he was speaker was the failure to reach the so-called “Grand Bargain,” in 2012, which would have been an agreement with President Barack Obama and congressional leaders to curb spending while reducing the national debt and avoiding sequestration.
