RedTracker| The looming shutdown of America’s federal government, now hours away, is all about defunding Planned Parenthood. House Speaker John Boehner & Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid spoke to reporters without taking questions, admitting that the problem is defunding Planned Parenthood.
Speaker Boehner has asked President Obama to sign a one-week spending bill to keep the government running, writes USA Today.
“This is the responsible thing to do,” said Boehner, R-Ohio, without taking questions from reporters.
Reid spoke next saying: ‘it is ‘shameful’ that Republicans are trying to move ‘an extreme social agenda’ that will ‘throw women under a bus even if it means it will shut down the government.’
