Boehner: Shutdown of Homeland Security Department possible

The Associated Press

House Speaker John Boehner is raising the possibility that the Department of Homeland Security may shut down at month's end because of a budget impasse, and he's blaming Senate Democrats if that happens. Asked what if the department funding were to run out, Boehner said, "Well, then, Senate Democrats should be to blame. Very simply."

Is Speaker Boehner Throwing-In With Conservatives For A Change?

Echoing conservative arguments in favor of the House-passed appropriation that prohibits money being spent on Obama’s unconstitutional “executive amnesty” Boehner said he is “certainly” willing to let federal funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) expire this month if a congressional standoff that is threatening the agency’s appropriation continues.
