Wall street falls on concerns about us government shutdown.”
Obama did not take his comments to task, nor did his former Treasury Secretary and Senate Finance Committee chairman Max Baucus.
Democrats in the House had urged Obama to say that the government would reopen as planned on Tuesday, an approach he resisted.
Obama also said he wanted a bipartisan agreement on a resolution that would send the government back into a “full government shutdown” but added “the president also wanted더킹카지노 this debate to happen when it happened.”
The president sought to clarify the scope of the partial shutdown in his second comments on the crisis. He told reporters that Congress would “continue to come to카지노 사이트gether on a variety of issues so that everyone benefits and I think we’re going to get the results that we need.”
He did not say whether Obama and Boehner had a deal, though they met about the government’바카라s current funding levels. The GOP-led Senate on Tuesday failed to reach an agreement, leaving Congress and the White House facing a Tuesday deadline on the government’s funding through Sept. 30.
The White House said he would continue to push for agreement in the House before the deadline.
He told reporters later he did not mean to give an indication the government would reopen.
“That was part of the plan and the plan was put into place to give the American people the confidence that we’re going to be there,” he said, without elaborating further. “What I meant is, if you do it that way, they will see that the American people are going to be confident they’ll get the results they want from this government.”
Obama said he didn’t expect that there was likely to be another shutdown and instead hoped to make it a regular occurrence for the foreseeable future. He had told lawmakers he wanted one.
U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Obama had left “a lot of unfinished business to meet” after the president told the chamber he would be working for a bipartisan compromise on the budget.
Senate Republican Leader John Boehner of Ohio urged Republicans not to “turn back time” to Obama’s negotiating ability. “President Obama’s strategy of trying to negotiate with his legislative minority in order to find compromise can’t be done any other way,” he said.
