(AP) President Barack Obama plans to address the media after budget talks with congressional leaders at the White House.
The White House announced that the president will speak in the Brady Press Briefing Room at 11:35 a.m. EST Friday after ending a meeting with the lawmakers that lasted less than an hour.
Obama met with House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi as a series of automatic budget cuts are about to go into effect. There were no indications of a breakthrough in their stalemate.
