WASHINGTON, D.C. (KNOE 8 News) - After the National Governors Association leadership claimed to have a lot areas where both Democratic and Republican governors agreed, the bipartisanship seemed to break down Monday at the White House.

Following at meeting with President Obama at the White House, NGA members spoke outside about the economy and national guard cuts.

Despite a general message of agreement on issues from both the NGA Chair and Vice Chair, Gov. Bobby Jindal struck a partisan tone on the minimum wage and economy.

"What I worry about is that this president in the White House seems to be waving the white flag of surrender after more than 5 years now under this administration. The Obama economy is now the minimum wage economy. I think we can do better than that. I think America can do better than that." Jindal said.

Gov. Dan Malloy rebuked Jindal's statement immediately.

"I don't know what the heck was a reference to white flag when it comes to people making $404 a week. I mean that's the most insane statement I've ever heard quite frankly. So let's be very clear we had a great meeting and we didn't go down that road and it just started again and we didn't start it." Malloy said.
