If Congress and the president fail to pass a continuing budget resolution by March 27th, a government shutdown will go into effect. Washington failed to stop the sequester, and with yet another budget deadline looming, President Obama is trying to woo Congressional Republicans with a visit on their turf.

This week, President Obama has met with nearly every member of Congress, a goodwill effort as Democrats and Republicans try to balance the budget and avoid the government shutdown. Takeaway Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich reports the latest from D.C.

A good meal can go a long way in getting this country's politicians to compromise... They need to eat lots of mashed potatoes and mac and cheese...they need to keep eating heavy foods that would make them sit there and listen to each other.
We have got to get these politicians to stop thinking about eating healthy...Bloomberg should serve huge sodas. If only we can keep these politicians fat.
