WASHINGTON —

President Barack Obama is on Capitol Hill for a third straight day of meetings with lawmakers from both parties to discuss pressing fiscal issues, gun legislation and immigration.

Obama is meeting Thursday first with Senate Republicans and later with House Democrats. It's part of a broader effort to strengthen ties with Congress.

He met with House Republicans on Wednesday. That's the same day the House Budget Committee chairman, Wisconsin's Rep. Paul Ryan, proposed a new budget plan that includes repealing Obama's health care law and cutting spending for programs Obama and Democrats want to preserve. Obama brushed off that proposal as more of the same from Republicans.

Obama started the week of outreach on Tuesday with a session with Senate Democrats.
