Political leaders plan another day of deficit-reduction talks

Washington (CNN) - A day after a 75-minute session, talks will resume Monday to try to reach a deficit-reduction deal and pave the way for a hike in the nation's $14.3 trillion debt ceiling, a White House spokesman said Sunday.

White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer said on his Twitter account on Sunday night that congressional leaders will return to the White House for further negotiations on Monday. At 11 a.m. that same morning, President Barack Obama will hold a press conference in the White House briefing room, according to his official schedule.

    Just like the Republican haven't done anything now for over three years except give the RICH more TAX CUTS and say NO. So why would It be any thing but to mess this up Too. You Republican keep saying you are doing want the American people want, Well you know that a LIE, because when you had your town hall meeting across America the People told you what they wanted . And you are till Not Listening to the American People. But I bet you hear American people In 2012 when you lose Control of the house and lose seat In the Senate. and President Obama get Reelected. Because the American people are feed up with you republican and the Tea Party. You both are full of bunch Crap. And John Beohner you have to be the worst speaker of the house America ever had. Republican and the Tea Party are the Party of Complain and LIE.

    why try to placate that american taliban group, the tea party. Its appearent now to this country that they could care less about this nation and would like to see the govt and more than half the people in the united states destroyed. as i stated before the taliban is a threat to this nation and should be destroyed, the tea party is the american taliban.

    Boehner pushes smaller debt-reduction deal
    So the Republicans have spoken and EVERYONE must kneel…
    …down to the RIGHTeous with NO compromise
    In the long run THAT would be the Repub’s demise!!

    Boehner is caught between a ROCK and a HARD PLACE
    Compromise he sees but to the HOUSE it's the worst-case
    Even though they fight NOW and it's very obvious it political
    An agreement would take place right at the time it gets critical!!

    The American people are not STUPID…………WHERE ARE THE JOBS???????
