Former House Speaker John Boehner said he convinced his replacement to take over his punishing job by laying “every ounce of Catholic guilt that I could on him.”

In an interview on CNN, Boehner said that he told Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan that he had no choice in the matter.

“This isn’t about what you want to do,” Boehner recalled telling Ryan. “This is about what God wants you to do.”
