WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will meet separately this week with Senate Democrats and Republicans to discuss ways to bring down the nation's deficit.

The Senate Democratic Caucus will come to the White House Wednesday, while Republicans will meet with Obama Thursday. The White House says the President will also meet with bipartisan House members in the coming weeks.

The meetings come as Washington shifts its focus back toward domestic issues following the killing of Osama Bin Laden. Both parties say bringing down the deficit is a top priority, though they differ greatly in their plans for doing so.

    Don't worry about it, America will solve the problem in November 2012. Here is some suggestions for the interim. #1. Repeal Obummercare, it is UNCONSTITUTIONAL! (follow a U.S. district court ruling) #2. Allow more drilling. (follow a U.S. district court ruling) #3. Take a basic economics course that explains concepts like supply and demand curves. #4. Vote Republican or Independent. Never vote for the Democrat socialists again as we have seen the destruction that is their dream.
