So noooow they see how serious this can get.
Just six days before the prescribed deadline to extend the government’s borrowing authority, President Obama and Republican leaders met last night in a 90 minute meeting that was called in an attempt to come to an agreement that would re-open the government and raise the government debt ceiling. No deals were signed, however, a senior Republican did say that a deal could be reached as soon as today. Republicans in the meeting offered to extend the government’s borrowing authority for several weeks, temporarily putting off a default that otherwise could come as soon as next week. Obama pushed to also reopen government operations that have been closed since October 1.
The two sides are working on “defining parameters to see if we can make progress,” said Republican Representative Pete Sessions, a member of the leadership. On the other side of the coin, the White House offered via press statement that “The President looks forward to making continued progress with members on both sides of the aisle.”
It’s evident that the Republicans are willing to put American lives on the line as a threat to undermine Obamacare. The new healthcare initiative was unfazed and took effect at the beginning of the month.
The President said that no negotiations will occur until the government reopens and removes the threat of immediate default.
That’s a President that cares about the people.
