Obama to Congress: No negotiations to reopen govt

AP White House Correspondent
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says President Barack Obama has told congressional leaders he still won't negotiate over re-opening the government or raising the nation's borrowing limit.
Obama and top lawmakers met for more than an hour at the White House on Wednesday, the second day of a partial government shut down. The leaders emerged to say no progress had been made.
White House spokesman Jay Carney says the discussion was useful and that Obama is hopeful common sense will prevail. But he says Obama still wants the House to pass a temporary spending measure with no unrelated conditions attached. He says that measure could pass the House with a bipartisan majority.
The House has passed multiple bills to fund the government, but all include provisions that would hamper Obama's health care law.
