House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer and Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley spoke with reporters about negotiations over the debt ceiling and attempts to bring down the budget deficit and federal debt. They said that the Republican “Cut, Cap and Balance” bill would hurt states, and also that they believe a long-term solution is needed. Representative Hoyer indicated that Republicans could allow some of the George W.
