Sources: Key moment in White House meeting came between the President and Paul Ryan

According to multiple sources familiar with the meeting, the President and House Republicans had been going around and around for about an hour with no resolution on a path forward. Republicans emphasizing, over and over, what the House Speaker laid out: pass a six-week debt ceiling extension, then sit down immediately and start negotiating. The negotiations would begin with discussions to fund and re-open the government. The president kept pressing Republicans to re-open the government right away.
