Former Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod said House Republican leaders suffered an "embarrassment" Thursday evening after failing to round up the votes to pass "Plan B."
"I mean, this is the longest day of the year, and certainly true for John Boehner," Axelrod said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Friday. "I'm sure he's scratching his head right now. But the bottom line is that we need to fashion a plan, and the President's offered one, where you can get bipartisan support and move forward. This shouldn't be about caucus politics. It should be about solving a big problem for the country. And hopefully over the weekend, the speaker, the leadership, will think that through and come back and be ready to negotiate seriously and move forward."
