President Barack Obama and key lawmakers did not reach a compromise to end the federal government shutdown during a White House summit held Wednesday, Bloomberg reported Thursday.
Congressional leaders held to their positions on the budget and healthcare law during the hour-long talks, according to the report by Richard Rubin, Roxana Tiron and Kathleen Hunter.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told reporters that the Obama administration “will not negotiate.”
Obama and fellow Democrats believe Boehner should allow for a full House vote on a bill to extend government funding through mid-November.
Democrats also want Republicans to agree to raise the debt ceiling before commencing further budget talks, according to Bloomberg.
