Best Buddies To The End: Pelosi And Boehner

Once upon a time Conservative Americans thought the Republican party went to Washington to represent their interests.

Today, thanks to Donald Trump, they know better. We have become 'The Party'. 

Pelosi will miss the perpetually spineless Boehner.
Via The Hill:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday dismissed reports that she and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) struck a deal to avoid a government shutdown shortly before he announced his resignation.
Some conservatives, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), have alleged that before announcing his resignation as Speaker on Friday, Boehner acquiesced to Democratic demands and agreed to fund Planned Parenthood and a litany of other liberal initiatives to avoid a government shutdown.
“The early reports are discouraging,” Cruz said, The New York Times reports.
“If it is correct that the Speaker, before he resigns, has cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to fund the Obama administration for the rest of this year, to fund ObamaCare, to fund executive amnesty, to fund Planned Parenthood, to fund implementation of this Iran deal, and then presumably to land a cushy K Street job after joining with the Democrats to implement all of President Obama’s priorities, that is not the behavior one would expect from a Republican Speaker of the House,” he continued.
But Pelosi disputed that claim in an interview with host Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.
“No, I wish it were true,” Pelosi said. “All we have agreed is that we have to honor the calendar which says that on Sept. 30 the fiscal year ends and we have to have a continuing resolution to take us forward as we prepare for the omnibus bill which will take us through the next year.”
Boehner said in a separate interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday that there won’t be a government shutdown because he expects the Senate will pass a continuing resolution to fund the government next week, and that the House will likely take that up and pass it.
Republican leadership is under pressure from the party’s base to defund Planned Parenthood after a string of controversial undercover sting videos were released showing official from the group negotiate the price of aborted fetal tissue for scientific research.

Thank You The Hill and Dapandico.

Don't go away mad Mr Speaker, just Go Away. 

Can't even accuse them of being Bipartisan anymore. 

Sickening, just sickening.
