Apparently the White House has rejected the surrender all offer coughed up by Speaker John Boehner and other House GOP leaders. Obama wants a longer deal, according to the Washington Post.
For those trying to follow the back story, it appears two Republicans in the senate were instrumental in Speaker Boehner's shift to progressive appeasement. The Post mentions Senators Lindsey Graham and Saxby Chambliss by name.
Republicans, other conservatives, and libertarians in South Carolina and Georgia, please take note.
