Rep. Steve Israel: 'No one is talking about cutting entitlements'

House Speaker John Boehner said this weekend that he cannot sign on to a $4 trillion debt-reduction package because the White House continues to insist the package include some tax increases.

Despite this, the White House has said that it will continue to push for the biggest deal possible, although a meeting last night between President Obama and congressional leaders adjourned without any signs of progress.

Representative Steve Israel (D-NY) joins Kiran Chetry this morning to talk about where the Democrats stand on potential cuts to entitlement programs and to weigh in on the status of the budget negotiations.
