White House: House GOP bill demands a 'ransom'

10/15/13 11:05 AM EDT

The bill that House Republicans are planning to vote on Tuesday is unacceptable to President Obama, White House spokeswoman Amy Brundage said in a statement.

“The president has said repeatedly that members of Congress don’t get to demand ransom for fulfilling their basic responsibilities to pass a budget and pay the nation’s bills.  Unfortunately, the latest proposal from House Republicans does just that in a partisan attempt to appease a small group of Tea Party Republicans who forced the government shutdown in the first place," Brundage said.

"Democrats and Republicans in the Senate have been working in a bipartisan, good-faith effort to end the manufactured crises that have already harmed American families and business owners," she continued. "With only a couple days remaining until the United States exhausts its borrowing authority, it’s time for the House to do the same.”
