Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) insisted after his conference’s Tuesday meeting that he hadn’t decided on a way forward for re-opening the government and avoiding default, though details of a plan had already leaked from House leadership sources.
“There are a lot of opinions about what direction to go,” Boehner told reporters after the two-hour meeting. “There have been no decisions about what exactly we will do.”
House leadership aides had leaked details of the House’s plan during the meeting, which TPM reported. But the National Review Online’s Robert Costa reported after Boehner’s remarks that the leaked plan would be “tweaked” before coming to the House floor.
