Comcast, Yahoo CEOs Among Business Leaders Scheduled for White House Meeting

Comcast CEO Brian Roberts and Yahoo chief Marissa Mayer will be at the White House on Wednesday for an afternoon meeting with other corporate chieftans to discuss the economy and the deficit.

They’ll be joined by others, including Goldman Sachs’ Lloyd Blankfein, AT&T’s Randall Stephenson and Macy’s Terry Lundgren, to participate in the meeting with President Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden.

The White House says that the meeting will be to “discuss the actions we need to take to keep our economy
growing and find a balanced approach to reduce our deficit.” The Beltway term for that is the “fiscal cliff,” a Jan. 1 deadline before tax cuts expire and massive reductions are made to the defense budget.
