Boehner cuts deal with Pelosi to fund Planned Parenthood
John Boehner flipped off conservatives on last time before vacating the Speaker’s chair. He reportedly cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi that would fund Planned Parenthood. Some early reports say that the deal cut by Boehner and Pelosi will last until December 11th.
Reports are everywhere today that Boehner has made a deal that will be implemented just before he quits in October.
According to those sources, outgoing House Speaker Rep. John Boehner and Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi agreed that her Democratic caucus would join Boehner along with a handful of Boehner loyalists and moderate establishment Republicans to continue Planned Parenthood funding, along with a few other budget items President Obama says were must-haves, in order to avoid a Government shutdown.
Boehner resigned because he knew that after he cut that deal, conservatives in his own party would be so furious with him that it would make challenges to his Speakership a certainty, sources say. Even if he survived those challenges, his remaining year and three months in office would be contentious and personally uncomfortable for him.
One source specifically said that the deal was limited to a continuing resolution that would last only until December 11.
Boehner’s last day as Speaker and member of the House of Representatives is slated for October 30.
So on his way out, John crybaby Boehner is cool with tax dollars being used to support infanticide and the selling of baby parts. This will be John Boehner’s legacy.
