President Barack Obama will meet with top Senate Democrats at the White House Thursday afternoon to discuss his jobs bill.
The White House says Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Sens. Dick Durbin, Chuck Schumer and Patty Murray will attend the meeting, scheduled for 5:30 pm EDT.
The meeting comes a day after Reid announced that he planned to bring Obama's $447 billion jobs bill up for a vote next week. However, without Republican support, the bill won't get the 60 votes it needs to advance.
The White House has been working with Senate Democrats on a new plan to cover the costs of the bill in hopes of easing the concerns of some lawmakers in the president's party.
