Obama already back on campaign trail

President Obama was heading to Detroit Monday afternoon to continue campaigning for tax hikes on top earners—a day after a face-to-face meeting with House Speaker John Boehner that offered slight hope the two could be making progress toward a deal. 

The president and the speaker met Sunday afternoon at the White House for the first time in weeks. It came after Boehner publicly chided Obama on Friday for the lack of progress to date, accusing the president of having "wasted another week."
