John Boehner to CBS: There won’t be another federal government shutdown on my watch

CBS’ JOHN DICKERSON: Four days, the government runs out of money. Is there going to be a shutdown?

JOHN BOEHNER: No. The Senate is expected to pass a continuing resolution next week. The House will take up the Senate bill. We will also take up a select committee to investigate these horrific videos that we have seen from abortion clinics in several states that really raise questions about the use of federal funds and raise questions about aborted fetuses that are born alive.

CBS’ JOHN DICKERSON: The continuing resolution, will that require Democratic votes to pass?

JOHN BOEHNER: I’m sure it will. But I expect my Democrat [sic] colleagues want to keep the government open as much as I do.

CBS’ JOHN DICKERSON: And what about the rest of the business you want to get done before October 30? What is on the to-do list?

JOHN BOEHNER: Well, we have got — I have got another thirty days to be speaker. And I’m going to make the same decisions the same way I have over the last four-and-a-half years to make sure that we’re passing conservative legislation that is good for the country.
