Obama to meet with GOP

Obama to meet with GOP:

House Republicans are set to hold talks with president Obama today in an attempt to strike a deal on the federal debt ceiling and budget. Yesterday, the possibility of short term increase for the debt limit was floated in the hopes more time would lead to more productive talks and eventually a broader compromise. Any conversation between the two parties is progress, but these meetings will have to go very well for a resolution to be reached by next week's deadline.
