Political leaders debate budget stalemate

Washington (CNN) - White House officials led by Vice President Joe Biden met for the first time Thursday with House and Senate leaders in both parties to begin negotiations on major differences over spending cuts.

The meeting, held on Capitol Hill, was prompted by congressional Democrats who implored the White House to get more involved in the battle with Republicans over spending.

    Good luck with that Joe. The Republicans have one agenda and that is to discredit and slander the President in anyway they can for their ownselfish reasons. They do not care about the Ameican people, They care only about pandering to the Tea Party. I hope that the Tea Party goes into oblivion just as their predacessor the John Birch Society has. And please check the JBS out, one of the founders and funders was the father of the Koch brothers. Perhaps they just want our Country renamed to the US of Koch.
