From today's The Daily Beast:
"If the starting point for this meeting is the job-killing bills the American people have already soundly rejected, Republicans would rightly be reluctant to participate....'Bipartisanship' is not writing proposals of your own behind closed doors, then unveiling them and demanding Republican support.... Bipartisan ends require bipartisan"
Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner and
Republican House Minority Whip Eric Cantor
in a letter to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel
