Sucker Punch on the Way Out? Did Boehner Make Deal With Pelosi to Fund Planned Parenthood on Verge of Resignation?

As all of Washington talks about the sudden resignation of Speaker of the House John Boenhner, rumors abound that on his way out the door he’s made a secret, backroom deal with extremist left-winger Nancy Pelosi to “keep the government open” and one of the provisions is to continue funding the baby murdering Planned Parenthood.

Reports are everywhere today that Boehner has made a deal that will be implemented just before he quits in October.

According to those sources, outgoing House Speaker Rep. John Boehner and Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi agreed that her Democratic caucus would join Boehner along with a handful of Boehner loyalists and moderate establishment Republicans to continue Planned Parenthood funding, along with a few other budget items President Obama says were must-haves, in order to avoid a Government shutdown.

Boehner resigned because he knew that after he cut that deal, conservatives in his own party would be so furious with him that it would make challenges to his Speakership a certainty, sources say. Even if he survived those challenges, his remaining year and three months in office would be contentious and personally uncomfortable for him.

One source specifically said that the deal was limited to a continuing resolution that would last only until December 11.

Boehner’s last day as Speaker and member of the House of Representatives is slated for October 30.

Senator Ted Cruz has also heard these rumors.

“I will say, the early reports are discouraging. If it is correct that the speaker, before he resigns, has cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to fund the Obama administration for the rest of its tenure, to fund Obamacare, to fund executive amnesty, to fund Planned Parenthood, to fund implementation of this Iran deal — and then, presumably, to land in a cushy K Street job after joining with the Democrats to implement all of President Obama’s priorities, that is not the behavior one would expect of a Republican speaker of the House,” Cruz said at the conservative Values Voter Summit in Washington.

So, do you believe these rumors?

Sadly, they are VERY believable.
