During President Barack Obama’s Tuesday press conference at the White House, the President came out swinging at Republicans for demanding “a ransom,” in their efforts to get what they want during the budget negotiations.
`Republicans do not get to demand a ransom- President Barack Obama
Obama stated,” we are not going to pay a ransom,” adding that because of the government shutdown, which he naturally blames Republicans of solely causing, their actions would cause a global economic crash.
“House Republicans don’t get to demand ransoms in exchange for doing their jobs.” –President Obama #JustVote
