President Reaches Out

WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBS) - President Obama reaches out to Republican leaders to try and kick start negotiations on the sequester.

The President called House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell Thursday to talk about the automatic budget cuts. Congress has been on recess this week and when they get back next week, they'll have four days to work out a deal or the cuts will kick in.

Neither the White House nor aides to the Republican leaders discussed the details of the phone calls.
