(Kennedy Space Center: Anderson Cooper) The meeting of President Obama and Congressional leaders about the budget deficit and the debt ceiling introduced. [OBAMA - says there was a spirit of problem solving at the meeting.] [Representative John BOEHNER - says we will not raise taxes.] [Senator Mike LEE - speaks about revenue raising--not taxes.] [Representative Nancy PELOSI - opposes cuts in entitlements.]

(Kennedy Space Center: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Jessica Yellin and David Gergen about the politics. [YELLIN - talks about a possible deal, what the president said about a short-term deal and a bigger deal that would allow Boehner to bring more people into the solution.] [GERGEN - says a new deal would require a major cave by Republicans on taxes and Democrats on entitlement cuts, so a short-term deal is likely.]

Cooper, Anderson
