President Barack Obama is scheduled to hold a press conference today at the White House.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney made the announcement via his Twitter account Tuesday morning that the president will be taking questions from reporters at 10:15 a.m.

 

There are several important topics of discussion in Washington, D.C., at the moment. Obama submitted his budget earlier this month, proposing cuts to Social Security. He signed into law last month an across-the-board automatic spending cuts plan known as the sequester, and the cash crunch has affected agencies including the Federal Aviation Administration. Lawmakers had to pass a new law to fund the FAA so that furloughed air-traffic controller workers could return to work and help ease flight delays.

Moreover, there is continued concern over the conflict in Syria and reports of chemical weapons use; the debate over comprehensive immigration reform; the recent failure of passing a gun control bill; and the president’s relationship with congressional Republicans, which has reportedly sunk to a new low.
