Boehner: ‘We’re in Wait-and-See Mode’ on DHS Funding

House Republicans emerged from their closed-door meeting Wednesday morning in agreement they’ll wait and see what the Senate can pass in regards to legislation funding the Department of Homeland Security.

That is, however, where the strategy ends, at least in terms of what’s being articulated publicly.

Members left the hour-long gathering in the basement of the Capitol unclear what their next move would or should be in the event Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., succeeds in getting the votes in his chamber to advance a “clean” bill to prevent a DHS shutdown on Friday.
