"The news economically on the jobs front in the last several days underscored the importance of this meeting that we just came out of. There’s a commitment for next week that we will be engaging, once again, in a robust series of meetings to see if we can achieve a result. We believe that many of the problems surrounding the lack of job creation and growth in this country have to do with the fact that there isn’t a credible plan to manage down the debt and deficit in this country. That’s what we’re trying to produce here and we had much substantive discussion today and look forward to more next week."
