Skip to comments.House GOP seeks conference with Senate Dems on shutdown (The cave begins?)
Posted on 09/30/2013 8:08:34 PM PDT by Qbert
House Republican leaders will seek a conference committee with Senate Democrats in a last-ditch effort to find a compromise on a short-term spending bill, a GOP aide confirmed late Monday night.
The GOP proposal to meet comes after a days of sending bills back and forth to each other with no effect. The House has sent the Senate proposals to undermine ObamaCare, while the Senate continues to insist on a spending resolution that doesn't touch ObamaCare. A conference committee would give a members of both chambers to meet face to face to decide how to move forward on a spending bill, instead of the "ping-pong" back and forth that has taken several days and yielded nothing.
However, it's unclear how quickly the two chambers could agree to anything once they start meeting, which means a partial shutdown of non-essential government functions now seems certain after midnight at least for a few hours, and possibly longer.
The Rules Committee is expected to meet in the coming minutes on a proposal to seek a conference committee with the Senate.
It’s long past time to shut this motherlover down.
No cave, Reid just rejected this proposal.
Into the breach we go, people. Prepare for the media mountain making in 50 minutes.
Dingy Reid shuts down conference...but, R’s are the ones unwilling to negotiate. Hmmm.
Let the surrender begin.
Can’t wait to give the left everything it wants and hear about the great “compromise”....
Make Dingy pass a BUDGET.
Obama care is death.
It will be really hard for Reid to turn down. Reid wrongly thinks he has been winning the pr war.
Sobber of the House CAVED ! His last offer was to fully fund Obamacare !!!!!!!!!
Just heard Rep. Bachman say so on Greta.
“Last ditch” describes the GOP-e rather well.
If Hasting’s right, the actual deadline is 2am. At any rate, that was his claim in the just-concluded committee meeting.
Yep. No more CR's. Put a stop to this perpetual chaos.
Thanks Harry Reid. But I’m sure he has his orders from the WH.
who is sobber?
Bonehead is. he cries a lot.
Pelosi up with Chris Van Hollen live on Greta. Either she is s##tfaced or she’s got the big A, lived with both. can read that in a heartbeat.
The “stare” was not normal, something physically wrong with this woman.
he’s a mess
probably a drunk
Pelosi is an alcoholic?
The Members of the US House of Representatives vote to choose a leader for the House from time to time. Pelosi had the job before Boehner.
Ol’ Blue Eyes Boehner has an emotional problem that, well, is - - - .
Let me put it this way: A blubbering, sobbing idot such as Boehner is not someone one would choose to have in one’s foxhole at the front lines of an epic battle.
Hence, Boehner has been branded Sobber of the House.
This name was bestowed on Boehner in the deepest disrespect possible.
Pelosi is a psychotic.
