Obama won’t deal, House takes a break as the Senate leaders talk

Republican leadership told the Republican caucus during a Saturday morning meeting that the president will not accept their proposal to raise the debt limit for six weeks.

House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama couldn’t work out a deal leaving Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, and his counterpart, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in “cordial” and “preliminary” discussions.

Tennessee Republican Bob Corker told CNN that Reid and McConnell “will continue to talk over the weekend.”

“Again, it is very evident that the White House is not going to be involved in negotiations, at least at this point they are not, and that the centerpiece is Reid and McConnell. So I think all of us want to support those efforts and hopefully they bear fruit over the weekend,” Corker said.

Corker said that lawmakers continue to talk to each other and that discussions are “good.”

“It doesn’t seem like the White House is serious at all about entering negotiations with us until they see what comes out of the Senate. If they get something out of the Senate that’s weaker than our negotiated position, it obviously strengthens their position,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Illinois said.

The House will not vote on its proposal to reopen the government this weekend after the Obama-Boehner deal fell through.

Chuck Schumer, D-New York, said progress is being made. “I think our Republican colleagues are moving in our direction with the fact that Obamacare is not a major part of the discussion any more among most all Senate and many House Republicans,” he said.
