WASHINGTON – President Obama is in talks with Senator Harry Reid and Senator Mitch McConnell to raise the debt roof.
“The ceiling isn’t high enough any longer. We need to press on, and push up,” explained the President’s spokesman this morning at a White House news briefing.
Obama met with Reid and McConnell yesterday to negotiate a formal raising of the new debt roof. Democrats and Republicans continue to be divided on the issue of new federal revenues. Sources confirm that the meeting with McConnell got heated. An aide claims to have seen a “chandelier shake, swinging from front to back.”
“The President believes strongly that it is time to stop protecting corporations. In order to move forward for the people, we need to come to a consensus and implement tax changes for corporations. Big companies are not public enemy number one, but we need to stop shielding them. It’s time to get busy,” his spokesman continued.
The President is getting “roof-raising” support from the Vatican:
Obama will be meeting with Hillary Clinton tomorrow to discuss a revision of the Glass Ceiling Act of 1991.
