No Deal Reached Between Obama And House GOP





White House SC

Following a meeting at the White House Thursday between Barack Obama and a select group of U.S. House Republicans, reports indicate the two sides were unable to reach an agreement that would end the ongoing federal government shutdown.

A White House statement called the 90-minute powwow “a good meeting,” despite the fact that “no specific determination was made.”

Both camps vowed to continue working toward a compromise, with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) promising to keep the dialogue alive throughout the rest of the day.

Republicans offered a plan that would allow the nation’s astronomical debt limit to increase, though the House plan would not end the shutdown. After the olive branch was dismissed by Democrat Senate leaders, Obama reportedly rejected it as well.

Obama will meet with legislators from both parties in coming days as he tries to find a way to salvage his plummeting approval rating by mismanaging even more taxpayer money.

With House Speaker John Boehner’s decision to invite only certain representatives to the meeting, a group that excluded the chamber’s most conservative voices, at least the White House will have a hard time blaming the Tea Party for this latest impasse.

  1. Tell Harry Reid, on raising the debt ceiling, NO WAY! Kiss the American taxpayers butt because we are done contributing to his greedy fascist hand! Cut the Debt Ceiling! MAKE A BUDGET and Live within your budget, just like the rest of us have to do! No more money to the debt ceiling! LOWER the debt ceiling! Tell Obama his vacations have been CUT from the budget! Cut Funding to NSA! Cut funding to the Middle East terrorists, AQ and MB! Cut funding to the White House and decrease staff ! Keep the debt limit the same. When he cuts these programs he will have extra spending money. NO CUTS, NO EXTRA MONEY!

    House Speaker John Boehner pulled out of negotiations with Obama on raising the nation's legal limit to borrow money, just days before the deadline when the Treasury says the government will no longer be able to pay all its bills and possibly faces its first-ever default. "The White House moved the goal post," Boehner said in a news conference, claiming that the talks broke down when the White House demanded an additional $400 billion in new revenues, on top of the $800 billion that had been agreed on, "which was going to be nothing more than a tax increase on the American people," Boehner said. "They refused to get serious about cutting spending and making the tough choices that are facing our country on entitlement reform," he added. Boehner sent a letter to lawmakers saying, "In the end, we couldn't connect. Not because of different personalities, but because of different visions for our country." Boehner will now work with Senate leaders "to find a path forward," he wrote in the letter to lawmakers. Boehner said he's "confident" they can "act next week and not jeopardize" the country's sterling credit rating. If Congress fails to raise the debt limit, economists say it would be a financial disaster that could plunge the country back into recession.
    This is why this niger can not be trusted! The above statements were made in 2011 when a deal was made but then like a typical niger the goal posts were moved. BOEHNER, PLEASE DO NOT TRUST THIS LYING NIGER!!!
