Boehner Inches Closer

Apparently John Boehner has a bit of fire left in him.

House Republicans will vote to pass a one-year delay of Obamacare in exchange for funding the government, a plan that drastically increases the chances of a government shutdown this Tuesday.

The decision was announced by the GOP leadership in a closed meeting Saturday afternoon, according to sources present. Republicans will also pass a separate bill to fund U.S. troops if the government shuts down, GOP lawmakers said. The House’s funding measure will keep the government open until mid-December.

Good.  But there's more!

Additionally, Republicans will adopt a “conscience clause” that delays until 2015 an Obamacare requirement that employers cover birth control as part of their health-insurance packages.

Just a First Amendment thing, ya'know.  (One suspects that Politico forgot "abortion" language here).

Let's see who folds first.   

Oh, yes.  Let's see if Boehner thanks Cruz for doing the heavy lifting.

I wonder. Did they include making all gov't employees and staff, meaning themselves, and SCOTUS, use this excrement of a health scam as well?
