Following talks between congressional Republicans, Democrats and White House officials, Vice President Joe Biden issued a news release that was so short, he might've wanted to text it.

Statement by Vice President Biden on Today's Budget Meeting with House and Senate Leaders

"We had a good meeting, and the conversation will continue."

That's pretty terse for the famously loquacious Biden. I'm guessing this means the two sides made about zero progress toward agreeing on how to fund the federal government through the end of September, particularly on how large, and where, the spending cuts should be.
