Obama Storms Out of Debt Ceiling Meeting

According to House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, “Nobody can out debate” President Obama in the debt ceiling debate. Why then has President Obama reportedly scolded congressional leaders during a debt meeting and then stormed out, contending, “Enough is enough?”

The meeting began to become contentious when House Majority Leader Eric Cantor told President Obama that “Congress should instead consider a series of debt ceiling votes based on spending cuts that already have been identified. Talks could then continue to identify additional cuts for subsequent voters.”
