Below is from FNC’s Mike Emanuel

 

ACCORDING TO TWO SOURCES IN THE ROOM, SPEAKER BOEHNER TOLD GOP MEMBERS:

 

Passing a short-term hike buys time for the House and Senate both to pass a budget.

 

Chairman (Paul) Ryan is going to be working with all of us to draft a budget by the April 15 deadline.

 

With the right reforms in place, Paul’s goal is to advance a budget that balances within a decade. I applaud that goal, and share it. …

 

And as I said at the retreat, the sequester will be in place unless and until we get spending cuts and reforms to replace it, and that start us down a path to balance within the decade.”
