President Barack Obama says it may take a couple of weeks or a couple of months to reach a deal to end Washington's battle over spending cuts.

The president spoke after meeting with congressional leaders at the White House on $85 billion in automatic spending cuts that go into effect Friday.

Obama says the cuts are "dumb and arbitrary" and he blamed them on Republicans in Congress.
