Cantor: Obama Stormed Out of Debt Ceiling Talks
Politico – President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of a stormy debt-limit meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday, a dramatic setback to the already shaky negotiations. “He shoved back and said ‘I’ll see you tomorrow’ and walked out,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told reporters in the Capitol after the meeting.
Cantor said the two sides were too far apart to get a deal that could pass the House by the Treasury Department’s Aug. 2 deadline. “Eric, don’t call my bluff,” the president warned, “no other president — not Ronald Reagan — would sit through such negotiations.”
