Did Boehner Cut a Deal with Democrats?

“House Democrats signaled Friday that Republicans have cut a deal with them to pass a Homeland Security funding measure next week that would last until Sept. 30. But Republicans are denying it,” the Washington Examiner reports.

“The deal, Democrats said, was made in exchange for Democratic votes in favor of a one-week extension of Homeland funding.”

“Next week, Senate Democrats are all but guaranteed to block a motion to hold a conference with the House… Republicans would then presumably have no choice but to put a bill on the floor funding Homeland until Sept. 30 which would pass with full Democratic support but would anger House conservatives.”
