Senate Repubs were supposed to meet with Boehner, right now, but it seems that has now been delayed to Tuesday morning, per FOX
I guess they leak the story out early to see if we will accept the cave in deals they come up with (to see if any of it will “stick”).
The BBC World News editor Mark Mardell spoke a few minutes ago on air of the GOP needing something in the deal to “save face”.
In other words Boehner and his team need something to look good and I don’t think there’s anything good about caving into Obama.
I like combining all of our leverage, which is sequester and the debt limit.- Paul Ryan to National Review, October 2nd, 2013.
Where in the world to Paul Ryan get the idea that the GOP would have any leverage on the debt ceiling? We have had a successful govt. shutdown for 2 weeks, which will only come to an end, because going past the debt ceiling date is being heralded as armageddon? Republicans are caving, not because they want to end the shutdown, but because they are so scared that the global economy will collapse if they don’t raise the debt ceiling. Yet, Paul Ryan believed the GOP had leverage with the debt ceiling. What an idiot.
