This meeting has nothing to do with the shutdown. This meeting is to negotiate what Republicans want in exchange for increasing the debt limit.
My bet is after yesterday’s debacle with Obamacare, obama will settle for the 1 year delay ( which will go to 2015) in exchange for another trillion. If that happens, both sides win politically while we all lose, as usual.
Well, I’m sure both subjects will be discussed.
Keeping the partial funding bill out of the senate and off Obama’s desk will be ‘the elephant in the room’ re both subjects.
Hope Boehner doesn’t let him off the hook on the shutdown in exchange for a debt limit deal- which is IMHO what he wants today.
He is going to play them both. You watch.
He will claim he and all four Leaders agreed that they could hammer out a deal but that the “Tea Bagger Wing” will not, so even if they did it would fail in the house.
Pitting Boehner and Mitch against the Conservatives.
Boner said last Winter he would never negotiate with the Jug Eared fraud again. SO DON’T!
