    So 5 GOP preidential candidates were invited to meet with LaRazza and NONE of them CAME.

  2. I was wondering if you Chicas would have this up. I haven’t heard or read what he said yet. I’m going to hunt it out later on the WH site. I have kind of a busy day. Hope all is well with everyone, I’ll try to check back here later.

  3. Obama says debt deal must include revenues,0,417383.story?track=rss

    Reporting from Washington — As Republicans and Democrats continue trying to hammer out the details of rival plans to avert a debt crisis, President Obama on Monday called for a proposal that will raise more revenue from the wealthy — a provision that has vexed his talks with the House speaker.

    Yet in a speech Monday afternoon to the nation’s largest Latino interest group, Obama made the case that attacking federal debt and deficit simply by cutting government spending won’t spread the burden fairly.

    Some of the cuts under discussion would require seniors to pay more for their healthcare and diminish temporary assistance and job training for displaced workers.

    “Not only is it not fair if all this is done on the backs of middle-class families,” Obama said, “it doesn’t make sense. … That’s why people from both parties have said the best way to take on our deficit is with a balanced approach … one where wealthy Americans and corporations pay their share, too.”
