House Republicans remain torn over automatic budget cuts
(MCT) — WASHINGTON — As House Republicans struggle to resolve their differences over how to deal with deep automatic budget cuts set to take effect in three weeks, Senate Democrats have largely sided with President Barack Obama’s call for a mix of spending cuts and revenue increases.
Obama traveled to Annapolis, Md., on Wednesday to meet with Senate Democrats at their private retreat and spent an hour working the room.
