Boehner doesn’t have to worry about losing his speakership or the damaging effects on party morale that a failed attempt to oust him would have. He can comfortably pass a “clean” temporary spending bill that includes funding for Planned Parenthood.
Mitch McConnell offered up a bill on Tuesday that would fund the government, but defund Planned Parenthood. The bill is expected to receive a vote on Thursday.

On Thursday, Rep. Paul Ryan strayed from the current Republican mantra when he said he “respectfully disagrees” with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops that it’s not very Jesus-like to let poor people starve.
