This is HUGE: Speaker of the House John Boehner will be resign from Congress next month. The Ohio Republican took the gavel in 2011 and has faced many challenges from conservatives who are angry that things aren’t being accomplished. After winning control of the House and then the Senate, Republicans haven’t lived up to their promises as President Obama continues to rule essentially unchecked.
The current pressing matter John Boehner is faces is the fight to defund Planned Parenthood. Conservatives are willing to shut the government down in order to stop the $500 million pipeline of federal tax dollars to the abortion giant now caught trafficking parts of the babies they abort. But mainstream Republicans are hesitant to do this as they are concerned more with the next election than the victims of Planned Parenthood. Conservatives have pressed leadership on this issue, challenging their pro-life credentials when they aren’t willing to risk their political futures.
Now, that fight will be passed onto the next Speaker.
This is a major blow to the Republican establishment, as outsider, non-politician Presidential candidates like Donald Trump, Dr. Ben Carson, and Carly Fiorina top the polls.
