Obama will meet with top congressional budget-writers for lunch

Last night it was dinner with Senate Republicans; today it's lunch with top congressional budget-writers.

President Barack Obama plans to have lunch Thursday with House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., and Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., top Democrat on the committee.

The effort is another chapter in Obama's new effort to reach out to members of both parties in Congress. Next week he plans to meet with party caucuses, as he seeks common ground on a long range solution to the nation's fiscal chaos.
