In this March 13, 2013, photo, President Barack Obama turns to reporters as he leaves the Capitol after his closed-door meeting with Speaker of the House John Boehner and Republican lawmakers, in Washington. Obama has hosted dinners and lunches and visited Capitol Hill over three days in his outreach effort with Congress. Lawmakers say it will take putting the entire force of the White House operation behind opening lines of communication if the effort is to stand any chance of bearing fruit. (AP Photo/J.
