SHARE GOP members mulling short-term plan -- debt limit vote could come Friday

In a closed meeting, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner was pitching this morning a proposed six-week debt limit increase to House Republicans.

Details include a temporary debt limit increase to Nov. 22nd — then begin a conversation on a longer term budget agreement.

A vote on the debt-limit was likely Friday, according to a member meeting.

Boehner was pushing a Paul Ryan-inspired plan that was well-received by the party’s more conservative bloc, congressional staffers said.

The GOP was huddling this morning in light of the 4 p.m. (ET) GOP meeting at the White House.

The only member of the Illinois delegation who will attend the White House meeting is U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.)

U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) had worked to sell his plan that would raise the debt-ceiling for the short term to the Republican Study Committee — a conservative group of GOP members.
