Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama and congressional leaders met Wednesday to discuss upcoming budget deadlines, one day after House Speaker John Boehner drew a line in the sand over what could be another bitter showdown between the White House and Congress later this year.
The president focused on his "to-do list" for Capitol Hill, a five-step plan of fiscal policies the White House says is aimed at building economic growth. But Boehner's office said the meeting largely centered on the next scheduled debt ceiling hike, set to go to a vote at the end of the year, along with a "fiscal cliff" of expiring tax policies and new spending cuts coming before Congress, all by January 1.FULL STORY

Washington (CNN) – Aiming to draw a sharp contrast with a Republican-organized hearing a week ago that included an all-male panel of witnesses, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi convened her Policy Committee Thursday to talk about the president's new contraception rule and featured a single witness – the woman the GOP wouldn't allow to testify.
Pelosi mocked House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa's explanation for rejecting the Democrats' chosen witness for last week's hearing - Sandra Fluke, a law student. He argued she wasn't qualified to appear on the panel because the subject was meant to be about religious freedom, not birth control or health care policy.
