President, Congress leave one crisis behind but face long road to budget deal
Lori Montgomery and Zachary A. GoldfarbPresident Obama and congressional leaders sought Thursday to move beyond the cycle of crisis that has paralyzed Washington for three years, initiating talks over the broad issues at the heart of their fight: the size of government and the level of federal taxation.
Neither Republicans nor Democrats held out much hope that the talks would produce an ambitious deal to spur economic growth or tame the $16.7 trillion national debt. But senior Republicans — whose party suffered in opinion polls after forcing the second-longest government shutdown in U.S. history — said they are unlikely to use that lever to challenge Obama again.
