Congressman Tim Ryan's Statement on White House Meeting
Congressman Tim Ryan issued the following statement after he and his Democratic colleagues met with President Obama at the White House earlier today:
"President Obama let us know that he is happy to negotiate any and all budget matters. But these can only happen after the Republicans agree to open the government and raise our debt limit so we can pay our past debts.
"We are all anxious for Speaker Boehner to bring up a clean bill in the House so we can pass it with a bipartisan majority."
