Well. Apparently we have reached the stage of talking about a budget. The budget that should have been in effect in October. Of last year. The Democrats, unhappy with the Republican budget proposal though unable to come up with one of their own, have asked the White House to intervene and now the two sides have a meeting set for Thursday. To be refereed by Joe Biden. Should be some interesting quotes to come from that.
“It's really hard to go into a negotiation when the other side doesn't have a position. And I'm hopeful that the Senate Democrats will come up with some position so we can begin to have real negotiations.”
-- House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren
Do you think they have any idea how soon the next budget will be due?
