SHOTLIST:Pool - AP Clients Only Washington, DC - October 10, 20131. SOUNDBITE: House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)"Today marks the 10th day of the Republican government shutdown. If I appear shivery, it's because I came in from the rain, listening to workers talking about how they want to open government to go back to work. It's very clear that one person has the key to open government and that's the speaker of the house. We have said if he opens that door, we can give him 200 votes to open government and fund government. We have said we want him to open that door and go to the budget table and also surrender our prerogatives as a minority to clear the way for that discussion. We want the speaker to use that key, although we were getting soaking wet, it was nothing compared to how drenched the American people were from these policies. You know the list, from veterans, or our children on Head Start, and the rest, the list goes on and on. We have offered 13 different motions on the House floor.13 different opportunities for the Republicans to open government."STORYLINE: Facing a fresh deadline, House Speaker John Boehner said Thursday that Republicans would vote to extend the government's ability to borrow money for six weeks _ but only if President Barack Obama first agrees to fresh negotiations on spending cuts. Under the Republican plan, the partial government shutdown would continue in the meantime. White House spokesman Jay Carney said that Obama "would likely sign" a clean bill increasing the debt cap but that the president also wants Republicans to reopen the government. He did not rule out Obama agreeing to Boehner's debt ceiling proposal if the government remains closed, but the White House made no promises that Obama would hold negotiations under those circumstances. On Capitol Hill, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urged House Speaker John Boehner to allow a vote on a clean continuing resolution to re-open the government."It's very clear that one person has the key to open government and that's the Speaker of the House, she said. "We have said if he opens that door, we can give him 200 votes to open government and fund government."
