Stick a fork in relief from a CR...Boehner will resign...

via New York Times...
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.
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.
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.

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.
