Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said on Tuesday he doesn’t plan to make a habit of passing bills through the House that lack the support of a Republican majority.

“It’s not a practice I would expect to continue long-term,” Boehner told reporters after a closed-door GOP Conference meeting…

“We tried everything we could to get the differences in our conference resolved,” Boehner said of the GOP’s failure to pass its own version of the Violence Against Women Act. “And the fact is they couldn’t resolve their differences. It was time to deal with this issue, and we did.”
