John Boehner doesn’t enjoy congressmen wearing jeans

Speaker of the House John Boehner, second in line for the presidency, is not at all happy with the way things are going in Congress.
No, not the whole gridlock thing.
Let’s just say there’s no such thing as casual Friday in Congress. Boehner gave a dress code reminder during the last votes Wednesday.
“Members should wear appropriate attire during all sittings of the House however brief their appearances on the floor may be,” he said, according to the Hill. “You know who you are.”
Boehner also reiterated House rules against taking photos, and reminded lawmakers to show up for votes on time.
No word about bringing snowballs in the chamber though.
