Obama calls WH Meeting to discuss Shutdown, Debt Limit

With no sign of the House of Representatives passing a clean Continuous Resolution (CR) and the Senate refusing to take up it’s passed bills on delaying implementation of ObamaCare, President Obama has called a meeting of the four top congressional leaders to the White House for a Wednesday afternoon meeting.

Speaker Boehner’s office said,  “We’re pleased the president finally recognizes that his refusal to negotiate is indefensible.”

The New York Times reports:

It was to be the first such meeting since large portions of the government were forced to close at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, when the new fiscal year began without agreement on a stopgap spending measure, known as a continuing resolution, or C.R., that would finance the government until spending levels are set for the new year.

Seems President Obama’s no-negotiating stance with Congress has failed and the White House has decided to pivot on strategy once again.
