Sen. Dan Coats: It is important that we are at least talking

Coats

Statement as issued Friday by Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., about Friday’s White House meeting Senate Republicans, President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew:

“For a president who said he would not negotiate, today’s meeting was a step forward.

“Both sides had the opportunity to present their viewpoints, and it is important that we are at least talking.

“I will continue to work with my colleagues – in both the House and Senate – to find a solution so we can remove this uncertainty to focus on restoring our fiscal health and growing the economy.”
