Off for vacation…
Check it out:
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told reporters on Thursday that lawmakers will leave town for their summer vacation without completing their basic budget duties. Nor do they expect to reach a deal on the immigration crisis or the VA mismanagement before the August recess.
“I expect we’re going to do a C.R. (continuing resolution) next month,” Boehner said. He expects the temporary spending measure to keep the government funded at current levels until “early December” — after the midterm election. That leaves the remaining spending decisions up to a lame-duck Congress.
