GOP Rep. Charlie Dent To Vote Against Boehner On New CR


Moderate Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) intends to vote against a “rule” on Monday to bring up Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) new continuing resolution to chip away at Obamacare, TPM has learned.

He and other GOP moderates are upset with their leadership for taking the country to the brink of a shutdown and support a “clean” CR to maintain the status quo and avert a shutdown.

It’s unclear if Boehner has the votes to bring up — and pass — the new bill. Opposition from moderates like Dent may scuttle it.
