The government shutdown continues!
GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor posted the above photo on his Twitter.com account the other day. The photo shows House GOP members sitting across the table from a row of empty seats patiently awaiting Senate members.
“In divided government, the only way forward is to sit down at the table. The House awaits the Senate…” Cantor tweeted. The majority Democratic Senate members refused to show up for a conference to continue talks that could end the government shutdown. And in a failed meeting with President Obama yesterday, a median compromise still could not be reached.
In the meantime, President Obama is standing his ground that “he will not compromise to end the government shutdown” just to appease the republicans.
