The Daily Quote

“For years, House Republicans have clamored for a budget from the Senate. Now that they’ve got one, they’re not sure what to do next…. But inaction may not be such a bad thing for House Republicans. Going to conference to match the House and Senate-passed budgets — or making any movement on the budget right now — could open up a schism in the caucus on spending that for months leadership has managed to keep mostly at bay. Some members see this as an opportunity to make a deal that makes permanent real budget cuts. There’s a contingent that either doesn’t want to make a deal with Senate Democrats or would prefer to wait until the debt ceiling is closer and they presumably have more leverage. And some would just toss the House-passed plan and start over.”
