There is no “set price” to meet with President Obama, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday amid continued outcry over the role of Organizing for Action, the outside group supporting the president’s agenda.
“Any notion that there is a set price for a meeting with the president of the United States is just wrong,” Carney said during his daily briefing.
Since OFA is intended to back the president’s agenda, it makes sense that Obama would meet with the group, Carney said. “As anyone would expect, the president would likely meet with their representatives to discuss his agenda.”
“But, again, any notion that there’s a price for meeting with the president is simply wrong,” he added.
