Feedback at 5:00: Political Gridlock

Posted: Updated:

There could be new hope on the horizon to break the political gridlock over the nation’s budget difficulties.

President Obama is personally reaching out to Republicans. He wants to build support for a long-term budget deal.

Last night he had dinner with a dozen Republican Senators, and today he is having lunch with Congressman Paul Ryan, who was GOP challenger Mitt Romney’s running mate in the Presidential Election.

For tonight’s “Feedback at 5:00” do you have any optimism that the two sides will come together for a long-term deal?
