    before they adjourned.  "I look forward to working with my close friend for the next six days on this issue" or words to that effect.  

    We'll see what comes of this. I hope Rep. Slaughter comes back and keeps us informed.

      Boehner actually sort of backed down and said if we have time to discuss whatever their issue was we can work this out.  Well it was stated during the discussion that they were derailing the agriculture appropriatons bill by injecting another issue that would be taken up later.  I believe when Boehner et.al. were confronted with the proposition that they would be staying there throughout the first week of the recess to get the work done that Hoyer outlined he was looking ready to back down.  The repubs were being real babies today.
