TOP STORY

REPORTER: ONE BY ONE

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS ARRIVED AT

THE WHITE HOUSE.

THEIR MEETING WITH PRESIDENT

OBAMA WAS CLOSED TO THE PRESS T.

HOUR-LONG MEETING WAS A PHOTO OP

TO SAY THEY MET.

NONE OF THIS IS HAPPENING.

IT IS BECAUSE OF A CHOICE

REPUBLICANS AND CONGRESS HAS

MADE.

LET'S MAKE IT CLEAR THE

PRESIDENT GOT HIS TAX HIKES ON

JANUARY 1ST.

REVENUE IN MY VIEW IS OVER.

IT IS ABOUT TAKING ON THE

SPENDING PROBLEM HERE IN

WASHINGTON.

FISCAL CONSERVATIVES ARE

THRILLED ABOUT THE CUTS.

BOTH SIDES AGREE IT IS BETTER TO

HAVE CONTROL ABOUT HOW THEY ARE

MADE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: WE SHOULDN'T

MAKE DUMB ARBITRARY CUTS TO THE

THINGS BUSINESSES AND WORKERS

DEPEND ON LIKE EDUCATION AND

RESEARCH AND INFRASTRUCTURE.

HOUSE MINORITY LEADER NANCY

PELOSI.

IT WILL BE WEEKS BEFORE IT IS

REALIZED.

SEQUESTER MEANS HOLD HOSTAGE

ALL THE THINGS YOU CARE ABOUT.

NEXT WEEK THEY WILL AVOID A

GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN AT THE END

OF MARCH.

MEANWHILE THEY CAN CONTINUE TO

PLAGUE BOTH SIDES OF

PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

JENNIFER WISHON JOINS US WITH

MORE JENNIFER, HOW DO WE GET TO

THIS POINT?

MARK, REMEMBER, PRESIDENT

OBAMA WON RE-ELECTION PROMISING

TO RAISE TAXES.

REPUBLICANS PROMISED TO HOLD THE

LINE AND CUT FEDERAL SPENDING.

WHEN IT COMES TO THE SO-CALLED

SEQUESTER CUTS, BOTH SIDES

OBLIGATED TO FOLLOW THEIR

MANDATE.

THAT IS WHY WE HAVE THIS

STALEMATE OVER BUDGET ISSUES.

IT IS GOING TO CONTINUE.

WHERE WILL AMERICANS REALLY

FEEL THE PINCH FROM THE CUTS?

IT WILL BE GRADUAL.

AGENCIES HAVE SIX MONTHS TO MAKE

THE CUTS.

ALL WEEK THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN PAINTING

A GLOOMY PICTURE OF WHAT IS

GOING TO HAPPEN.

FOUR HOUR LINE LONGS AND SCHOOL

DISTRICTS HANDING OUT PINK

SLIPS.

WE HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE HOW MUCH

COMES TO PASS.

AFTER HEARING FROM MILITARY, HOW

IT AFFECTS MILITARY

PREPAREDNESS.

WHAT MAKES OUR TROOPS THE

MIGHTIEST IS THEIR PRACTICE.

IN TERMS OF HOW IT WILL AFFECT,

LOOK, MARK WILL WOULD SAY LINES

ARE ALREADY LONG.

TAX SEASON IS COMING UP, HOW

WILL THE TAX CUT AFFECT IRS.

ANY FURLOUGHS -- TAX REFUND

CHECKS WILL NOT BE DELAYED DUE

TO THE SEQUESTER.

JENNIFER WISHON, THANK YOU

FOR KEEPING US UPDATED, TAKE

CARE.

THANK YOU.

FIGHT FOR GAY MARRIAGE IS

HEADED TO THE SUPREME COURT THIS

MONTH.

AHEAD BOTH THE PRESIDENT AND

LEADING REPUBLICANS ARE SPEAKING

OUT IN SUPPORT OF SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE.

DALE HURD REPORTS

REPORTER: PRESIDENT HAS FILED

FRIEND OF THE COURT BRIEF URGING

THE JUSTICES OVERTURN

CALIFORNIA'S GAY MARRIAGE BAND,

PROPOSITION 8.

IT IS THE FIRST TIME THE

PRESIDENT HAS URGED THE COURT.

THE PRESIDENT USED TO OPPOSE GAY

MARRIAGE.

HE CALLS HIS CHANGE IN VIEWS

EVOLUTION.

MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN A MAN AND

WOMAN.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: MY VIEWS ARE

CONSTANTLY CHANGING.

I THINK SAME-SEX COUPLES SHOULD

BE ABLE TO GET MARRIED.

THIS IS THE LATEST IN CIVIL

RIGHTS ISSUE.

IT IS A QUESTION OF WHETHER OR

NOT AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE

TREATED WITH EQUAL PROTECTION OF

THE LAWS.

HIGH COURT WILL BE HEARING

TWO GAY MARRIAGE CASES PROP 8

AND DEFENSIVE MARRIAGE ACT.

APPLE, GOOGLE, FAYS FACEBOOK

AND -- SOME BACKERS OF

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE BELIEVE THE

HIGH COURTS DECISION WILL SWING

THEIR WAY.

WHAT IS THE PUBLIC PURPOSE OF

MARRIAGE?

MARRIAGE BRINGS TOGETHER MEN AND

WOMEN FOR THE REPRODUCTION OF

THE HUMAN RACE

REPORTER: DALE HURD, CBN

NEWS.

JOINING US NOW IS THOMAS

PETERS FROM NATIONAL

ORGANIZATION FOR MARRIAGE.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

GOOD TO BE WITH YOU.

WILL THE PRESIDENT'S BRIEF ON

PROP 8 HAVE ANY IMPACT ON

WHETHER TO UPHOLD THE LAW?

IT WILL HAVE A NEGATIVE ONE.

I THINK HE HAS POLITICIZED THE

ISSUE.

HE HAS NO CREDIBILITY.

THAT MONTAGE SHOWS HE HAS

FLIPPED HIS POSITION SEVERAL

TIMES AND WHETHER WE ARE GOING

TO RESPECT THE RIGHT OF 7

MILLION CALIFORNIA VOTERS OR

ERASE THEIR DEMOCRATIC VOTE.

A LOT OF REPUBLICANS WHO ARE

TYPICALLY SOCIALLY CONSERVATIVE

ARE SWITCHING.

THEY ARE NOW SUPPORTING GAY

MARRIAGE.

WHY IS THAT DO YOU SUPPOSE?

FIRST OF ALL, I THINK THAT IS

NOT ACTUALLY WHAT IS HAPPENING.

IF YOU LOOK AT THIS LIST, THEY

ARE NOT IN OFFICE ANYMORE.

THEY DON'T HAVE TO FACE THE

VOTERS.

WHEN REPUBLICANS SWITCH THEIR

VIEWS, THEY LOSE ELECTIONS.

ALL OF THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES

FOR PRESIDENT LAST TERM,

REPUBLICAN PARTY IS STRONGLY

PRO-MARRIAGE.

OPPONENTS TRYING TO CONFUSE THE

ISSUE.

PROP 8 AND DEFENSE AGAINST

MARRIAGE ACT, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

WE ARE VERY CONFIDENT THAT

THE SUPREME COURT IS GOING TO

VALIDATE THE RIGHTS OF ORDINARY

AMERICANS TO PROTECT MARRIAGE

AND LAW AS OVER 30 STATE VS.

DONE AND HOLD A MARCH ON THE

NATIONAL MALL TO SHOW THE

PRO-MARRIAGE MOVEMENT.

ALL RIGHT.

THANKS FOR JOINING US.
