Obama calls lawmakers to White House in effort to break debt stalemate - The Washington Post
And what the hell is this guy's point (bolded)?President Obama will summon lawmakers to the White House this week in an effort to break a stalemate over how to rein in the soaring national debt.
In an announcement Tuesday afternoon, Obama called on Republican and Democratic leaders in the House and Senate to each send two representatives to the newly-constituted talks, which are aimed at slicing more than $2 trillion off the federal budget by 2021.
“The problem with a mini-deal is we have a maxi-problem,” National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn (Texas) said on “Fox News Sunday. “We’ll take the savings we can get now, and we will re-litigate this as we get closer to the election.”
