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.

Two threads on this... See post #3 for link -Admin DrPizza

Who will lead these open items?
- lawsuit (and hopefully imprisonment) of the President
- follow up to undo the deal with Iran (and hopefully imprisonment of the President)
- ACA reversal (and hopefully imprisonment of the President)
- PP being shut for ever and ever (and hopefully imprisonment of the President)
- bully the Smithsonian for displaying art Christians do not approve of (and,.. hey, why not; hopefully imprisonment of the President)

Further evidence (as if more were needed!) that the Republican Party as it currently exists desperately needs to check its collective self into the nearest psychiatric emergency room for extended in-patient diagnosis and treatment. (vb sigh)
