Obama to meet congressional leaders Friday

President Obama will meet with congressional leaders on Friday, the day that $85 billion in automatic budget cuts are set to take effect.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., confirmed the meeting in a statement Wednesday, calling Friday’s scheduled session “an opportunity for us to visit with the President about how we can all keep our commitment to reduce Washington spending.”

Obama is slated to meet with McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, as well as the top two Democrats in Congress, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

Friday, March 1, is the first day of “the sequester,” the $85 billion in automatic domestic and defense cuts that has triggered the latest budget standoff between the White House and congressional Republicans.

    I can’t wait for Obamas sequestration to kick in , I’m a little sick of seeing him and all of his dept heads running all over screaming the shy is falling the sky is falling . All that they are cutting is 45 Billion for a budget of a trillions and Obama seems to not be able to find anything to cut ! I’d say hey lets start with welfare Cell phones that cost the tax payers just over 1.6. Billion dollars last yr. But thats just a drop in the bucket as to what Obama did really to Spend $10.3 Trillion on Welfare Now I say hell cut that out they have free baby setting in Head start Mc Donald’s and such places are always hiring . I think on Average the welfare family receives just about 40K per yr .. I’ve lived on less and had to operate a shovel all day to get that or less even.. Obama is bankrupting this country..
    He is printing money so fast soon Charmin will be more valuable and harder to acquire then paper money in the U.S read the history of Germany and or Russia or Japan and see what happened to their currencies when they had scaliest or Fascist in control . I just wish Obama would stop show boating and banging his on drum and meet with the conservatives ad work out a deal.. This country is robbing the rich so bad to allow the poor bums to live well I fear at this rate the wealthy will just find a more cash friendly country to move their wealth too. and how many of you people ever had a poor person to hire you to work ? Obama hates successful people and wants to punish them much as who he calls his daddy did .. Obama was raised as a communist its all in his books and background of mentors and family and friends .. Now he just has to get the control on the Guns ! then they will make a bolder move.. But right now the guns are his next hit.. And people somehow don’t feel that this country can fall flat ? Yes well its happened to bigger wealthier for the times and stronger then this country they failed gone poof History ..
