No Word Of Budget Breakthrough

There’s no word of any breakthrough after President Barack Obama wrapped up separate meetings with Senate Republicans and House Democrats on trying to avert a government shutdown March 27.

The full Senate could vote next week on a Democratic blueprint that calls for roughly $1 trillion in new tax revenues over the coming decade and slight increases in spending.
