House Budget Chair Womack: I Expect ‘Some Kind of a Clean CR’ in January

On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Cavuto Live,” House Budget Committee Chairman Steve Womack (R-AR) predicted that there will be no movement on the government shutdown until the new Congress is sworn in, and then he expects that there “will be some kind of a clean CR,” but there is a possibility that House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) might be willing to make a deal.

Womack said, “[N]othing will happen until we get back to Washington, swear in the new Congress, elect a new speaker, and then I expect it will be some kind of a clean CR, or she [Pelosi] might be in the mood to cut a deal where the threat to her speakership may not be present at that time.”
