Urgent: Boehner cancels all afternoon events due to medical issue


Per Pergram-Capitol Hill


I am told he’s fine. He has historically had back problems and had some substantial surgery about five years ago.


He will not appear at the Anne Frank tree dedication nor a meeting he was believed to have with House Intelligence Commitee members.


From Boehner spokesman Mike Steel: The Speaker is having a minor, unscheduled medical procedure related to recurring back problems.
