Rep. Michael Capuano Talks Government Shutdown
Day two of the government shut-down and no sign of a resolution to the impasse. Well actually, there was a small potential sign. A meeting was announced. That’s right. A meeting.
President Obama will meet with House and Senate leaders from both parties at the White House this evening, in an attempt to work out a deal to restart the government. It’s a sign of how stuck things are in Washington when just the announcement of a meeting makes news.
Much of the attention has focused on the House GOP, which is fiercely divided between Tea Party conservatives and more moderate members who oppose the shutdown tactic. So where does that leave House Democrats, including members of the Massachusetts delegation?
