USA Today has the brief article Obama calls Boehner, will speak at 2 p.m.
President Obama called House Speaker John Boehner on Tuesday, again telling the Ohio Republican he will not negotiate on budget items until the GOP-run House ends the shutdown and raises the debt ceiling.
Gee, you’d almost think that the White House read my blog post White House open to short-term increase in debt ceiling. This is where I suggested the wording:
“Congress, just do your job. Keep the government running. Call me after you have done your job, and we can talk about other issues. There will be no further communications to you from the White House.”
Between the President and Elizabeth Warren, we might get this resolved.
