Later in the morning, the President and the Vice President will meet with Speaker John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Chairman Dan Inouye, and Chairman Hal Rogers to discuss ongoing negotiations on a funding bill to bring us through the end of the fiscal year. The President has made clear that we all understand the need to cut spending, and significant progress has been made in agreeing to all work off the same number - $73 billion in spending cuts in this year alone. With the process running short on time, the President will urge leaders to reach final agreement and avoid a government shutdown that would be harmful to our economic recovery. This meeting in the Oval Office is closed press.
