WASHINGTON (AP) — What to do now that the debt crisis is over? President Barack Obama is taking his staff out to lunch.
The president on Wednesday rounded up a handful of staff members who have been working nonstop for months on the debt issue and headed across Washington to Good Stuff Eatery.
Those who joined the group included Jack Lew, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, and Legislative Affairs Director Rob Nabors. Others in the group were Deputy Chief of Staff Nancy Ann DeParle and Gene Sperling, the head of the National Economic Council. Also included was Bruce Reed, chief of staff to the vice president.
