White House: All That Was Missing From GOP’s Debt Limit Demands Was A ‘Birther Bill’

September 26, 2013 9:30 a.m.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that he was surprised House Republicans didn’t throw birthers a bone in their list of demands on the debt limit.

“The only thing I didn’t see was a birther bill attached to it,” Carney quipped during the White House press briefing.

GOP leadership in the House drafted a proposal that surfaced Thursday to lift the debt ceiling through December 2014 in exchange for several conservative goodies, such as a one-year delay for the Affordable Care Act and approval of the Keystone pipeline.
