(CNN) - President Obama held his first news conference since March on Wednesday and was asked questions on a wide range of issues from debt ceiling talks between the White House and Congress to gay rights to Afghanistan and Libya.
In relation to the deficit talks, Obama called on lawmakers to overcome the "selfish" norms of politics and "do their job" in order to strike a deal on raising the federal government's current $14.3 trillion debt ceiling by the start of August. People shouldn't get "spooked," but "the yellow light is flashing," he warned. "This is urgent."
