Boehner: ‘We’re Going To Be Here Until Christmas’ if ‘Cromnibus’ Doesn’t Pass

The “cromnibus” came together with a last-minute backroom deal between Republicans and Democrats and plenty of lawmakers are upset — including Speaker John A. Boehner.

“This is exactly the way I don’t want to do business,” Boehner said Thursday, just hours before the House was slated to vote on the funding package. “Ideally, we would have been able to do this work one bill at a time.”

Boehner later gave members the hard sell on why they should vote for the cromnibus Thursday.

“If we don’t get finished today, we’re going to be here until Christmas.”
