President Obama, who said no to Harry Reid last weekend.

Idaho Republican Rep. Raul Labrador said on Meet the Press this morning:

Harry Reid denied all week that the original Boehner plan was agreed to last weekend. Now we see that the only difference between Reid and Boehner is the trigger. We now know that John Boehner has been telling the truth all week. If Harry Reid had just let Democrats vote for the plan they negotiated, we could have ended this last Monday.
