House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) sent a message over Twitter to his counterparts in the upper chamber on Tuesday: “We sit read to negotiate with the Senate.”

Cantor included a photo of House Republicans seated on one side of a conference table across from a row of empty chairs.

Senate Democrats have thus far rejected the House GOP’s proposals to negotiate a solution to end the government shutdown.
