Congressional Reluctance

Republican lawmakers have balked at the $3.7 billion request. They believe that Obama caused the crisis and cannot be trusted to resolve it. "We're not giving the president a blank check," House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) said, "We want to make sure we actually get the right tools to fix the problem. And that's not what we've seen so far from the president."
