Senior House Democrat leadership staff, on orders from Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are working with the Obama Administration to restore many of the cuts made by Senate negotiators last weekend.
"Both the White House and us think we can get those funds back into the conference bill. At that point, the Republicans in the Senate have some cover," says a House Democrat who began working with White House Legislative Affairs yesterday morning.
Republican Senators, who believe they were negotiating in good faith with the White House, were not notified of the House/White House moves.
