There is “no daylight” between the tea party and John Boehner, the House speaker said in an interview released Thursday morning as negotiations to avert a government shutdown come down to the wire.
“Listen, there’s no daylight between the tea party and me,” the Ohio Republican said in an interview with ABC News conducted Wednesday.
“None,” he said, when questioner George Stephanopoulos pushed back. “What they want is, they want us to cut spending. They want us to deal with this crushing debt that’s going to crush the future for our kids and grandkids. There’s no daylight there.”
