Say No To Saying Yes!
The President held a little dog and pony show, and that's all that it was. The President sat down with congressional leaders on both sides, and, according to John Boehner, all the President said was "I"m not going to negotiate."
How much help is that? What we need at this point is some type of negotiation!
At some point we have to let the process that our founders gave us work itself out.
All Harry Reid says is that they're just want Boehner to say yes. Yes to restarting the government, yes to funding the government, not for a couple of weeks, but for a few months, and then they'd be willing to sit down and have a conference committee to try and make some of the changes that the republicans want.
Harry Reid is trying to pressure the house republicans because he knows that they're up against a debt ceiling fight that they're likely to lose.
Congressman Ron DeSantis joined me on the program tonight, and said that if the government is restarted before they go to a conference committee on these issues, that all leverage is lost.
