Pres. Obama meets with party leaders, what's next?

Pres. Obama met today with leaders from both parties to try and break the shutdown deadlock.  But according to CNN's Dana Bash, the only sign of progress was all sides meeting face-to-face rather than communicating through the media.

    Last week the House – because the majority of voters demanded it – Voted to fund the gov't, and to defund OCare, because it was a Bill that wasn't read and was passed anyway.
    Once the details were read. After it became a law, it was obvious that it was a bad law.
    The House vote was the will of the People. Dems need to do what MAJORITY want, not their lobyist and special elitist interest groups.

    How sad that the republicans in congress are willing to allow all of the suffering as a result of their decision to not fund the government. Apparently what it boils down to is the fact that they are afraid of losing their seats if they anger the extremists in the republican party. What happened to pride and honesty in what you do? How do they sleep at night? What message are they sending to developing democracies? I guess anyone can be bought for enough money.
