Posted on 07/14/2011 2:06:46 PM PDT by tcrlaf
President Barack Obama told congressional leaders that a deal must be in place on Friday, or lawmakers will have to make contingency plans to raise the national debt ceiling, a top Democratic negotiator said Thursday.
Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) relayed Obamas message to reporters Thursday, saying they will have to act fast on a Plan B if a deal doesnt appear in place by tomorrow. Treasury has said the country will run out of money to pay all of its bills on Aug. 2.
"The president has expressed to the group that by Friday we have to get something done, Durbin said Thursday. And its realistic because if were going to extend the debt ceiling, it takes some time to not only write the bill but to have it scored and move forward.
Asked if that meant that Congress must move to another option if a deal isnt reached on Friday, Durbin said: We will have no choice at that point but to turn to some other option.

Check out some of the whackjob lib comments in this article. It's hilarious how stupid these people are.
“I want that ice cream NOW...Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!” Is it proper for a President (nobama) to have tantrums? Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
Friday, or else!
Ok, you got “ELSE”! Take that, and put some ice on it!
Hey Barry and your messenger boy Dick Turban, go pound sand.
Here’s that “patience of Job” the o-hole from California told us about.
I know you probably don't think they are really hilarious, but I just wanted to say I find them infuriating. Idiots like them have almost completely destroyed our country and when it is destroyed they will still be too stupid to realize they are the people that did it.
What happened to Camp David this weekend?
lol that is so right! I am sooooo sure. He can not be put out.
I pray he has to endure at least 1/10th of what Job did.
POLITICO 44 said the idiot was going to Montana for vaca. SO he will leave like a cry baby and find he has a challenger upon his return. They will decide the country does not need impeachment hearings during a depression.
Key words are also “all it’s bills”. So, you don’t pay all the bills, just the most important ones. The “pork” can sit and age a little.
Absolutely the truth.
These people can’t keep their stories straight for one day!
Has the president submitted a budget to Congress? NO! Has Congress written a budget? NO!
We all know what a “deal” means. Obama wants the House to cave and let him get away with stealing. We KNOW this. If they cave, they lose. We will be taking names and remembering come election day.
Pharo Obama is losing it. The MSM made him think he was King of America. Option B. Obama and Biden resign. We PARTY!
lets just hope that’s the thinking of cantor/boehner/mcconnell.....
the deal is simple- for every $1 of debt ceiling increase there’s a reduction of $1 in spending....its what most people who have a constrained budget do....
My God, he sent someone down to Congress to tell them what he wants? Can you see Harry Truman or LBJ doing that. What a whoosie.
Not only must he sit down when pees, but he has to make sure his shorts are long so no one sees his maxi pad on underneath.
LOL, no reason? Are you freakin' SERIOUS!!
