The Daily Quote

“House Republicans say they aren’t close to agreeing on a budget blueprint they have to approve before they can move ahead… Republicans’ inability… to find common ground in their own party shows why they’re having trouble moving ahead with their agenda even when they control both chambers of Congress and the White House.”
