Boehner knew the bill would be defeated....

if not like it was (by a close vote in the House) than in the Senate by a wide margin like 80-20. If all else failed, Obama would have certainly vetoed the bill, and the votes needed to override would have been severely short of the 2/3s needed in both houses. Still, Amash is to be commended for trying.
