"Issues sure to be talked about at this meeting will include unemployment and recent proposed budget cuts in the President’s budget."

Gee, how many CEOs does it take to and come up with a plan while talking about unemployment. Didn't Obama hire the ex-G.E. CEO to come up with a solution of unemployment. I think that Obama is wasting taxpayers' money and time. He should have had plans before he was elected president. It has been over 2 years now. HELLO, that is enough time to have come with an idea or something. Obama's problem, I think the lights are on but there is no one home. He keeps wasting time and maybe when he gets re-elected he will have the issue remedied.

Budget talks are also a waste of time talking to rich, fat cats CEOs. Do they actually know what is happening to middle class and the poor? The struggling millions are barely living to feed their themselves and their families. What does a CEO know about the situation.

How will the CEOs remedy the homelessness that will burden America's cities.

Just venting, I wish the CBC good luck.

Just my opinion but I think Obama is a bit of a dreamer and I think he believed the problem would solve itself. He underestimates the GOP and their power to get in his way. Keep contacting him and spread the truth.

It was postponed. They kept blowing her off with different excuses. Now the Chairman is going to meet with Obama tomorrow. Cross your fingers, pray, whatever you have to do. Let's just get it done!

I will cross my fingers and toes but I can't see Obama acknowledging us. Are they going to be talking about unemployemnt specifically? or about Long Term Unemployed and H.R. 589. Obama doesn't mind talking about unemployment until the words 99'ers or Long Term Unemployed come up then it seems to be all about the spin.

I guess time will tell. No specifics were mentioned in the article, just discussing unemployment. However you know the crew of 42 is going to bring up Hr589, that was the purpose of the original meeting.

This was from the press release after it was confirmed, I will check back later to see if there are any further updates:

Issues sure to be talked about at this meeting will include unemployment and recent proposed budget cuts in the President’s budget.

I just hope this doesn't backfire on us. It seems like Boehner doesn't agree with anything that Obama does. So if Obama finally lends his voice of support for H.R. 589 I am fearfull that it will piss off Boehner and he will do everything in his power to make it not happen.

Time for President Obama to stand up to them. He has been to quiet for too long. This is his chance to "Man Up' and do what is right for the people who elected him!
