Obama Insists Debt Deal Extend Past 2012 Elections
President Barack Obama told a bipartisan group of Congressional leaders Thursday that he will only sign into law a budget deal that extends the debt limit past the 2012 elections.

Hill sources briefed on the meeting said the president was very clear in laying down that marker and that he gave Members three options to pursue in striking a deal: a small, medium or large agreement.
