WASHINGTON — Speaker John A. Boehner will resign from Congress and give up his House seat at the end of October, according to aides in his office.Stick a fork in relief from a continuing resolution. The Republican Conservatives were already in a foul mood and this last dirty trick by Boehner to pass a CR with Democrat votes practically kills any chance for the F-35 to get a waiver.
Mr. Boehner was under extreme pressure from the right wing of his conference over whether or not to defund Planned Parenthood in a bill to keep the government open.
The DoD is about to get crushed, but the President will get a balanced budget.
This does explain why Boehner was so emotional when he met with the pope though. I wonder how long it takes for him to pivot into a lobbying job.
