  •  During the "debt ceiling" fiasco negotiations (1+ / 0-)

    In August of 2011 the Reid and Pelosi were not included in the final discussions that produced the "compromise" plan of sequester and the "Super Duper Committee". That was strictly a negotiation between the White House, Boehner, Cantor, and McConnell.

    I wouldn't expect the White House to include Reid or Pelosi in any negotiation and their entire involvement is almost certainly to get a whip count of how many Democratic votes they could produce based on proposed "deals" and nothing more just like August 2011.
