Skip to comments.Ending long break, White House and Republicans renew budget talks
Posted on 02/22/2013 1:36:59 AM PST by Olog-hai
After weeks without talks on the U.S. budget crisis, President Barack Obama called Republican leaders on Thursday to discuss the harsh sequestration cuts to government spending due to begin in just over a week.
In what might be just the start of long negotiations to prevent the $85 billion in cuts, Obama spoke to House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. The conversations were good, White House spokesman Jay Carney said, but he declined to provide details.
A McConnell spokesman said it was the first outreach from Obama since the New Years Eve fiscal cliff deal.

“After weeks without talks...”
Just like all the other crap they end up waiting until the last moment, and then pushing it through (7 days now) because it is “an urgent crisis”. FUBO. FURINOS.
I thought that Boehner said that he wasn’t going to deal directly with Obama anymore. Another lie.
It’s time for a third party on a national level. Most of us don’t have the name recognition to get this done, due to the massive amounts of money needed to start this and sustain it over a few losing cycles. But its going to need to start with the national talk radio people (who made millions off us, and need to take the risk to their reputation) and a group of real conservative Congressmen.
Simple message: cut federal spending, cut federal regulations (including repeal obamacare), free the states to tackle issues as they want (guns, abortion, gay marriage, drugs).
It may already be too late, but since it will take 2 or 3 cycles to win,it needs to start now.

He took a call. That's all. Nobody should expect him to reject a call from the President.
Do you work for Boehner or the RNC?
Do you work for the DNC or the White House?
I’m Conservative, but you’re the biggest party-first, Boehner apologist on this board. He’s going to sell us all out again, but here you are, still making excuses for him.
Now you jump to say Boehner's making a deal without knowing any facts.
I think you work for the DNC.
