Ryan’s Comments Change Tone Of Budget Meeting

paul_ryanRep. Paul Ryan, the Republican chairman of the House Budget Committee, “said something to the effect of, ‘Look, we know you don’t like our position, we know you probably don’t respect our position, but we’re the Republican majority,” CNN correspondent John King reported Friday on CNN’s “New Day.”

“‘You’re stuck with us for a while, at least through the next election season, so we need to learn to have a conversation with each other.'”

And at that point, both Democrats and Republicans say, the tone of the meeting changed,” King said. “The president said, “‘Listen, I’m not going to negotiate with you until you reopen the government, but go to your members, find out what you need to do to get that part done and let’s try to make some progress.'”
