Speaking on CBS' "Face the Nation," Boehner predicted that the House and Senate would pass a bill this week to keep the government running.Asked whether there would be a government shutdown, Boehner replied, "No". Boehner's resignation announcement removes the threat of a vote to oust him from the speakership, clearing the way for the House to pass a government funding bill free of a provision that would defund Planned Parenthood.The massive Republican class of freshmen in 2010 – fueled by the ultraconservative tea party movement – delivered Boehner to the speakership but also insisted on a cut-it-or-shut it governing style that eschewed compromise.
