WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker John Boehner (BAY'-nur) has emerged from a meeting with President Barack Obama to say the president is still refusing to negotiate.
Obama and congressional leaders met at the White House on the second day of a partial government shutdown. Boehner says it was a nice conversation but suggested little progress was made. He says he wants Obama and Democrats to sit down for a serious discussion about funding the government.
Boehner says House Republicans have sent four proposals for funding the government to the Senate, but they've all been rejected. He says the Senate should appoint conferees to work out differences between a House and Senate proposals.
Obama and Senate Democrats have rejected the House-passed proposals because they all make major changes to Obama's health care law.
