NOTE: Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told the president that Republicans won’t negotiate with themselves. The president’s budget outline he offered in his April budget speech at George Washington University did not include enough specifics for the CBO to score it. From our impression, he said, if a plan is not scoreable by CBO, we don’t view it as a plan, he said. We need real accountability. He challenged the President to agree to principles that budget details should be scoreable and that real entitlement reform is needed.
