Rahmbo Dares Roy

As House Democrats plan to roll out new energy legislation this week, Republican Whip Roy Blunt indicated he may recommend that the President veto an annual stopgap spending bill if it contains a renewal of the drilling moratorium.

NPR reports that brought a sharp response from Rep. Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, a member of the House Democratic leadership.

"If Mr. Blunt's recommendation to the president is for a veto to force that, he'd be the author of the shutdown of the government," Emanuel said.
