Pelosi: Republicans Can’t Even Negotiate With Themselves

WASHINGTON (October 4, 2013)--U.S. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said Friday that no progress has been made toward ending the government shutdown because "it's very hard to negotiate with the Republicans when they can't negotiate with themselves."

Pelosi told CBS that Democrats agreed weeks ago to the GOP money figure for stopgap spending, but said Republicans have stalled since then.

Pelosi said to get the government up and fully running again, "it will take some coming together on the Republican side."

The California Democrat said the expiration of the government's borrowing authority is a frightening prospect, saying that "we have to find a path" but have not found the ability to do so.
