White House officials say they expect House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to be in attendance. Vice President Biden will also be present.
The meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
White House press secretary Jay Carney shot down the idea, however, that the meeting would be a "negotiation."
He indicated Obama would repeat his demand that House Republicans approve a government-funding bill that includes no language on ObamaCare.
"What the president is asking Republicans in Congress to do is quite literally the least they could do," Carney said.
