Reid said it would be a “stretch” to say President Obama has “embraced” the Gang of Six plan. “He had a conversation with one of the members of the Gang of Six; he is very interested in what it does, but the president knows, as I have explained to him many different times, the problems we have with time around here.”
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday he just learned of the Gang details Tuesday and is still undecided on whether to support it. "We'll be looking at that as we move forward," he said.
McConnell, who is negotiating the fallback with Reid, would not say whether it can be part of a debt-ceiling increase.
