Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: House Republican leaders craft a legislative plan they think can win passage, only to be rebuffed by conservative members expressing outrage at the idea. Then, it’s back to the drawing board.
That’s the situation House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) currently finds himself in as he tries to pass a bill to keep the government funded beyond the end of the month. It’s an all-too-familiar spot for the GOP leader and his top deputies, for whom each high-stakes legislative battle seems even more ripe for party infighting than the last one.
GOP leadership was forced Wednesday to put off a vote on a plan offered by Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) because it lacked sufficient support from Republicans. The proposal would fund the government through mid-December and contains a provision to defund Obamcare.
