Boehner May Have to Ask Pelosi for Votes to Fund Gov’t
We need to make sure we get a conservative congress elected next year.
Check it out:
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) may have to turn to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to get the votes for a short-term resolution to fund the government after October 1.
After House conservatives refused to support a continuing resolution they felt was a “gimmick” to make it look like they were taking steps to defund Obamacare, Politico noted that Boehner may now “have to call on Democrats to avoid a government shutdown.” Congress has until September 30 to pass a continuing resolution.
But Pelosi and Democrats will seek compromises for their votes.
Democrats want to paint Republicans as “a party beholden to extremists,” possibly attach the Senate’s immigration bill to the short-term resolution to “counter the GOP effort to use the CR as a mechanism to force the Democratic-controlled Senate to vote on defunding Obamacare,” or seek compromises on the sequester.
