"It’s certainly something we should be looking at," Boehner said in an ABC News interview. "We’re in a time when the federal government’s short on revenues. They ought to be paying their fair share."
"Everybody wants to go after the oil companies and frankly, they’ve got some part of this to blame," he said.
But Boehner said he also wanted to "see all the facts" first.
