Inside she is jumping up and down for joy……

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) characterized House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) resignation from his leadership post and from Congress as “a stark indication of the disarray of the House Republicans” and “a demonstration of their obsession with shutting down government.”

“With all due respect for the speaker and his announcement, we still have to stop their actions in shutting down government. The opportunity for a clean, continuing resolution is an absolute necessity,” said Pelosi.

Boehner told lawmakers on Friday that he will step down from both his post as speaker of the House and from his seat in Congress, effective at the end of October.

Pelosi began her Capitol Hill press conference, saying, “The speaker announcing his resignation, that resignation is a stark indication of the disarray of the House Republicans, a demonstration of their obsession with shutting down government at the expense of women’s health and a sign of the failure of the House Republicans to engage in dialogue for the good of American people and for us to move forward.

“This resignation, as significant as it is and seismic for the House, does not undermine or diminish the afterglow of his Holiness Pope Francis’ visit to the Congress yesterday,” she said.

“With all due respect for the speaker and his announcement, we still have to stop their actions in shutting down government. The opportunity for a clean, continuing resolution is an absolute necessity,” Pelosi said.

“We hope that it will be done in a timely and dialogue-oriented respect for other opinions – again in the spirit of Francis – way, and we look forward to seeing what comes next, but we have been on a path that enabled the Republican caucus to work its will, the House to work its will, and the Congress to work its will to keep the gov’t open so that we can move forward for the American people,” she said.

“The disarray of the House Republicans, their obsession with shutting down government at the expense of women’s health needs to be reckoned with and recognized,” Pelosi added.
