FILE – In this March 13, 2013, file photo reporters press for answers to their questions as President Barack Obama turns to leave the Capitol after his closed-door meeting with Speaker of the House John Boehner and other Republican lawmakers in Washington. Over three days Obama hosted dinners and lunches and visited Capitol Hill in his outreach effort with Congressional Republicans, each on the others' home turf, making what seemed like an attempt to work together. But in reality, the past few weeks have simply shone the spotlight on the tension of this nation's say-one-thing-do-the-other politics. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
