WASHINGTON — Speaker John A. Boehner, under intense pressure from conservatives in his party, will resign one of the most powerful positions in government and give up his House seat at the end of October, throwing Congress into chaos as it tries to avert a government shutdown.

Mr. Boehner made the announcement in an emotional meeting with his fellow Republicans on Friday morning.

The Ohio representative struggled from almost the moment he took the speaker’s gavel in 2011 to manage the challenges of divided government and to hold together his fractious and increasingly conservative Republican members.

Most recently, Mr. Boehner, 65, was trying to craft a solution to keep the government open through the rest of the year, but was under pressure from a growing base of conservatives who told him that they would not vote for a bill that did not defund Planned Parenthood. Several of those members were on a path to remove Mr. Boehner as speaker, though their ability to do so was far from certain.

Mr. Boehner’s surprise announcement came just a day after Pope Francis visited the Capitol, the fulfillment of a 20-year dream for Mr. Boehner of having a pontiff address Congress. He had a private audience with Francis before the pope’s address to a joint meeting of Congress.

    Smh. Now just what does defunding Planned Parenthood have to do with keeping the government open? The religious right will stop at nothing when it comes to their agenda of stopping abortion and use of birth control. I don't really care about Boehner. They will just replace him with some nut who is obsessed with everyone's sex life. Here we go folks.

    You're right by saying "Here we go folks", because they are coming after planned parenthood and any program that helps minorities. These racist ass Republicans are about to go crazy and he knows it, which is why he's resigning.

    This is serious.

    Just heard this. His party finally broke him. Lol.

    I don't agree with a majority...everything he believes. But honestly tho, I do believe he was willing to work with the President on a lot of issues. but his own party, especially the Tea Party had his azzz hostage. That's his fault tho b/c he allowed a small faction take over the GOP party. Now look where they're at.

    Hilarious

    huh?

    Planned parenthood has done as much harm to minorities as the trans-atlantic slave trade.

    A whole generation of minorities have been aborted because of the founder of planned parenthoods racists ideology. 58+ million Doctors, lawyers, researches, physicists, astronauts, preachers, scientists, workers, artists, music players, and contributors to society never got to see the light of the sun because of Margret 🤬 .

    Some quotes from you champion who you said has "helped minorities"


    -Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.

    -We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the 🤬 is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the 🤬 population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.

    -I think you must agree ... that the campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims
    of eugenics ... Birth control propaganda is thus the entering wedge for the eugenic educator.



    There is much more filth that she spouted in regards to "helping minorities" if you did some research. Planned parenthood is destructive and disgusting! The founder wanted to use it as a way to exterminate "negroes".


    Oh but you just championed them as a "help to minorities"

    Are you saying that planned parenthood helps minorities?

    Because it was originally created as a tool for the population control of black ppl

    It was "created as a tool for the population control of black people" in 1916 means it doesn't provide help in certain black communities in 2015?

    I respect you two posters, but we're now in the year 2015. What applied then doesn't always apply now. There were a lot of government programs designed to hurt minorities back in the day. A lot of those same programs are now very helpful for minorities, including planned parenthood.

    Politics is toxic, the Pope must of got into some of these fools head. It doesn't matter though because someone worse will replace him, and inevitably the government will shutdown again.
