White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley doesn’t expect disagreement between the White House and House Republicans over the budget to lead GOP representatives to shut down the government. The results would be too serious for that to happen, he said at a meeting with reporters, Politico reports.

“I find it hard to believe anyone is going to screw around and bring this thing to the brink and have even a few days of chaos in the marketplace that will affect people’s pensions and affect their confidence at a time when the economy is just beginning to come back,” Daley says.

He also says advocates for domestic spending programs are going to have to accept cuts. “A lot of our friends aren’t going to be happy because there is going to be a lot of pain.”
