Somebody thinks so…..
House Democrats signaled Friday that Republicans have cut a deal with them to pass a Homeland Security funding measure next week that would last until Sept. 30.
But Republicans are denying it.
The deal, Democrats said, was made in exchange for Democratic votes in favor of a one-week extension of Homeland funding, which passed late Friday and averted a partial closure of the Department of Homeland Security.
In the hours before the final vote, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urged fellow Democrats to vote for the one-week deal, telling them it would lead to the full funding measure they are seeking.
“Your vote tonight will assure that we will vote for full funding next week,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi aides would not comment on the nature of the talks that took place with Obama, or if she struck a deal with Boehner. But one top aide denied Democrats voted for the week-long deal at the request of the president.
“Not true,” Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said on Twitter….
I mean it’s not like Boehner hasn’t had work WITH Democrats before to get around his right flank in the House has it?
