WASHINGTON, October 3 (Itar-Tass) - The Obama administration and Republican leaders in Congress have failed to agree on the issue of government funding, House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner after the meeting at the White House.
“The president reiterated one more time that he will not negotiate,” Boehner told reporters after the White House meeting. “All we’re asking for here is a discussion and fairness for the American people under Obamacare.” He said the Republicans had put forward a few suggestions, but they were rejected by the Democrats.
According to the speaker, the conversation with the president was frank, but did not yield results.
The White House stated before the meeting that President Obama would not make concessions to representatives of the opposition Republican Party in response to the current fiscal crisis. According to him, the administration head intended to once again urge the Republicans who control the House of Representatives to adopt the so-called “clean” resolution on interim financing of the U.S. government, and as soon as possible to increase the debt ceiling.
On October 1, 2013, the United States federal government entered a shutdown. This happened due to the cessation of budget financing in connection with the start of a new fiscal year. The debate on the budget between the U.S. administration and Congress has stalled - largely because of differences in principle on a new system of healthcare in the country - the so-called Obamacare programme.
