House Speaker John Boehner said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” this morning that there will be no government shutdown—thus signaling that the House of Representatives he will lead until the end of next month will not send the Senate a continuing resolution that Democrats there would filibuster because it prohibits funding of Planned Parenthood or that President Barack Obama would veto for the same reason.
In response to a follow-up question from host John Dickerson, Boehner said he was “sure” the funding bill he will put through the Republican-majority House will need Democratic votes to pass.
The law currently funding the government will expire on Wednesday, the last day of fiscal 2015.
Dickerson of CBS asked Boehner: “Four days, the government runs out of money. Is there going to be a shutdown?”
“No,” said Boehner.
