From Jen Friedman, Deputy Press Secretary:

"This morning, the President and Vice President met with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid to discuss their shared legislative priorities for the year ahead. Specifically, the President and Leaders discussed areas where Congress can take action on a bipartisan basis in the months ahead, including building on the bipartisan budget agreement the President signed into law last year to continue to adequately fund our domestic and national security priorities and continue to grow our economy, passing criminal justice reform, addressing the crisis in Puerto Rico, and addressing the opioid epidemic. The President and Leaders agreed that there is important business to get done this year, and the President looks forward to discussing these priorities with House Democrats at the Democratic Issues Conference on Thursday, and to working with the Democratic Leaders ?in the months ahead to deliver results to the American people."

Your pooler hovered in anticipation of Pelosi and Reid making remarks after the meeting but they did not appear. The White House lawn remains thick with snow but the driveway is clear.
