Congressional Leaders Meet on Fiscal Showdown

Top House and Senate leaders met in Speaker John Boehner's office "to try and hash out a path forward on this fall's fiscal fights," Roll Call reports.

"It was the first meeting on fiscal issues in months between Boehner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and it comes as Boehner's plans for a stopgap spending bill are in limbo following a revolt in his conference. Boehner also planned to lay out his demands for another round of spending cuts as his price for raising the debt ceiling."
