Obama Reid

FILE - In this Oct. 12, 2013, file photo President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nev., right, and other Democrat Senators meet in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington. Obama and congressional Democrats are relishing the party unity forged by the fall fiscal fights after some Democrats broke with the president this summer over Syria, government spying, and his leadership choice for the Federal Reserve. But their solidarity will face a tough test if Obama opens negotiations with Republicans on spending levels and entitlement cuts, areas where Democrats have long feared the president is willing to give away too much.(AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)
