Interesting: Bush won’t meet with House GOP

leave a comment »


House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) had been planning to hold a meeting on the economic crisis today. However, his conference was forced to cancel it when the Bush administration reportedly “refused” to send over a representative to “brief House Republicans on the federal government’s response to the latest financial turmoil.” Boehner said he was “concerned about the lack of information and the lack of consultation that has occurred.” Earlier this week, the White House also canceled press coverage of Bush’s meeting with his chief financial advisory group.

Update: In today’s White House press briefing, spokesperson Dana Perino simply said that “more and better and earlier communication between us [Congress and the White House] is always a better thing.”
