Will anything change between now and March 21?

It looks like John Boehner will escape his current predicament by passing a resolution to fund the Department of Homeland Security for just three more weeks.

I'm not sure how that really gets him out of his predicament though. I mean, doesn't it just create another predicament three weeks from now? Why does he keep setting himself up for difficult situations? I realize he has a rough conference and does not want to face the consequences when he gets branded an ideological heretic. But in a situation like this, it is better to just yank the band-aid off.
