John Boehner essentially ignores Harry Reid’s ‘request,’ tells Senate to send over DHS bill.

This response is either a display of the Hawaiian good-luck symbol┬áto Harry Reid, or simply an indication that the Senate is just going to have to shove this thing into conference. Your guess is as good as mine: “U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday said House Republican leaders were waiting for the Senate to act on legislation to fund the Department of Homeland Security.” I mean, personally I would prefer the Hawaiian good-luck symbol, but I can’t pretend that a conference to resolve the differences in the House and Senate DHS bills is a low probability. Guess we’ll see.

  1. Ok, for the slightly dense (me): By ignoring Reid’s demand, Boehner is rendering McConnell’s surrender moot, right? Funding is still blocked until they hammer this out in conference?

    If that’s the case, then I def think Boehner is signalling the HGLS.

    1. Pretty much looks that way.
      I think he’s getting tired of McConnell throwing him under the bus. Especially because every member of the House has to face the voters every two years.

  2. I shared this post with some friends, one of whom remarked, “Give fear a chance.” if Boehner is doing this out of fear from his own caucus.

    acat, someone else said to say “hi” or “Mew” whichever you prefer. ­čÖé

    1. Thank you, Lady P, good to know I’m not universally loathed.
      Please convey “hey” back to someone else for me?
