Subject: Urgent: Reid would not give full answer on House GOP debt ceiling plan

 

He was asked about it three times but only said it’s a step forward that Republicans aren’t tying a debt ceiling increase to entitlement reform or spending cuts.

 

Reid would not say what he would do if the plan were passed in its current form — i.e. the whole “no budget, no pay” idea that would pressure Senate Democrats to pass a budget. He said the “other stuff” will be dealt with later, and deferred to Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) the Budget chairwoman.

 

Reporters tried to call him out for not completely ruling out the House GOP bill but he stuck to his talking points.
