House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Friday returned to the Capitol from a one-on-one meeting with President Barack Obama and reiterated her position that Medicare and Social Security are out of bounds as part of any deal to raise the nation’s debt limit.

Although the California Democrat said Thursday’s bipartisan meeting at the White House — and her own Friday meeting with Obama — has created “some level of optimism,” she remained adamant that Democrats will not agree to cuts.
