Obama Calls 1st Meeting With Congressional Leaders on Shutdown
there should be a democratic government in U.S so that they can take decisions independently
The political pressure only intensified after Republicans’ latest strategy, to ameliorate some of the shutdown’s effects on veterans, national parks and the District of Columbia, failed to pass in the House Tuesday night and it faced certain rejection in the Senate and from the White House.
If Boehner chooses to hold his ground, however, there is a growing belief that the shutdown could last for days or weeks.
Already, the White House announced today that Obama canceled his trip to Malaysia and the Philippines scheduled for next week, indicating that the White House believes the shutdown could continue into a second week.
