It’s about time…

The Huffington Post

After House Republicans withdrew their proposed debt deal on Tuesday evening,Senate Leaders Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said they were ready to reopen negotiations to end the shutdown and avert a default.

Now, House Republican lawmakers and aides are saying they’re ready to throw in the towel and accept a Senate deal:

 

House Republicans withdrew their Tuesday proposal when conservative groups – namely the Heritage Foundation, Red State and FreedomWorks — slammed the deal as unacceptable.

Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas), chairman of the Rules Committee, told The National Review that House Republicans are now just “waiting for the Senate to get their work done.” He said House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) gave members of the House the evening to get up to speed.

“We’re trying to make sure that what we’re doing, people know about and they can prepare and study for,” Sessions said.

Of course, before the House can even consider a deal, it must pass the Senate with unanimous consent. Whether it’s really “over” hinges on the concession of the chamber’s most reluctant members.

  1. Just last night I said I didn’t think they’d carry this charade into Thursday..I figured they’d wait till the very last minute Wednesday; and looks like that will come true..Those good ole boys might be crazy and full of hate; but thankfully not crazy enough to force us into another recession..I still won’t breathe a sigh of relief until this is a done deal though. Can’t nor do I trust them..Its been an “enough already” situation since this crap began! I’ve been reading so much on this, and all over the place, that my eyes & head are hurting! Didn’t want to miss anything & lawd knows I can’t keep count of the times this has been topic of discussion..On and offline
