That was generous … or was it?

Update: Sen. Hoeven said the senators and Obama split the dinner. Not sure how many ways.

The bipartisan meeting w POTUS was such a success that both sides now spinning who paid/offered to pay for it.

Can’t even agree on this. MT: @rebeccagberg: WH say president picked up tab tonight, but Sen Hoeven said: “It was shared by a number of us.”

yeah, they’re gonna get stuff done MT @rebeccagberg WH says prez picked up the tab, but Sen Hoeven said: “It was shared by a number of us.”

@rebeccagberg Obama gave the Senators the bill, on the bill, the price was crossed out and said, “$17 trillion.” — Believable, right?

Sen. Hoeven’s office clarifies: Hoeven’s understanding is the president picked up the tab, but Sen. Saxby Chambliss offered to split it.

Ok white house says POTUS paid for dinner out of his own pocket. At least that won’t become part of the sequester debate!

WH official says Pres Obama paid for the dinner with a dozen GOP Senators & “greatly enjoyed” it.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) March 7, 2013

Thank goodness that’s settled. Was anything else accomplished?

After the dinner, Sen. Hoeven confirmed the Senate will add “a number of appropriations bills” to the House’s CR. Wonder if that will fly…
