President Obama has a long to-do list for his second term, and met with Senate Democrats on Wednesday to discuss his strategy to pass immigration reform, gun control and budget decisions. White House press secretary Jay Carney said the meeting was focused on aligning the Democratic senators' priorities with the administration's agenda. While meeting with lawmakers at the retreat, the president also pitched his proposal to avert the spending cuts set to affect the military, domestic programs and the economy starting March 1.
