Bipartisan Group of Congressional Leaders Meet to Discuss Pathway Ahead

With the government still locked in a shutdown and the debt ceiling deadline just over a week away, Speaker John A. Boehner hosted a meeting with Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer on Wednesday.

It was the first formal discussion between congressional leaders of both parties since a meeting at the White House a week ago, and with the debt ceiling deadline approaching, the meeting could be a make-or-break moment.

The meeting comes as Republicans are trying to find a way to move ahead on broader budget negotiations, which have been stuck since the shutdown began.

The meeting broke up around noon on Wednesday.
