Fresh off another Presidential asswhuppin’ - this time over the Iran nuclear deal - the GOP members of the US Congress are making serious noise about shutting down the government. Again. Some of their loonier elements want to defund Planned Parenthood, and are willing to blow up any budget deal that includes $$$ for PP. House Speaker John Boehner (#OrangeLivesMatter) knows he could smack his Tea party crazies down in a minute, but he doesn’t want to negotiate with Democrats to craft a bill that would give him the numbers to pass it.
Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (#Testudinata4Lyfe) is trying to talk his GOP members out of making this move, since he sees no point in doing it until there’s a president in the White House who will actually sign it. Yeah, good luck with that, Mitch; your members are allergic to facts.
