Vice President Biden Talks End Without Agreement

The budget deficit talks led by Vice President Biden have ended without agreement. Representative Eric Cantor (R-VA) pulled out of the talks, followed shortly thereafter by the other Republican Representatives. The collapse of the talks speaks to the difficulty of reaching agreement on how much to cut and whether revenues should be raised to bring down the deficit. The Arc remains concerned that Medicaid faces big cuts and that increasing revenue may not be part of the final agreement.
