The Veto Threat

A Statement of Administration Policy on the Boehner plan

If S. 627 is presented to the President, the President’s senior advisors would recommend that he veto this bill.


A Boehner spokesman responds noting the wiggle room the White House leaves itself: “The House plan is the only one with a pathway to the President’s desk, and we appreciate his apparent willingness to sign it. By signing the House bill, the President could quickly end the crisis atmosphere he’s created and demonstrate he’s serious about cutting spending.”
