Source: 2 Obama officials to visit Boehner, McConnell, Reid, Pelosi separately on fiscal cliff
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, the White House’s lead negotiator in the deficit-reduction talks, will meet with House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) and other congressional leaders Thursday as both sides try to broker a tax and spending deal before the end of the year.
Mr. Geithner will also meet separately with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.), and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.). Rob Nabors, the White House’s top legislative affairs office, will also attend the meetings, the Treasury Department said Wednesday.
Why isn't the freaking president meeting with them. We know the lazy #$%$ doesn't attend his daily national security briefings so that frees up time to pretend to do his job. Must have another #$%$ TV show to go on. Lazy POS.
