Boehner: No budget deal

Just days before a possible government shutdown, bipartisan congressional leaders met at the White House. Afterward, House Speaker John Boehner declared that while the session had been good, no agreement had been reached. Boehner, via a statement, added that "the House will not be put in a box and forced to choose between two options that are bad for the country." Those two options, Boehner said, were a government shutdown and inadequate spending cuts He also said that no new continuing resolution had been scheduled for floor action to keep the government funded past Friday. The meeting, which took place at the White House and at the invitation of the president, was designed to prevent a government shutdown that would come as soon as Friday if Congress and the president can't hammer out some kind of stopgap measure.
