Hoyer hopes for compromise

Watch Hoyer's full interview in "The Situation Room" Tuesday.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland, told CNN Tuesday he is hoping President Bush will compromise with Democratic congressional leaders over the Iraq spending bill.

"I think we are certainly willing to [compromise] and go down to the White House and discuss what we together as policymakers need to do," Hoyer told CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "As the president knows, we've given him all the money he asks for in our bills. In fact, we gave him more money for fighting terrorism in Afghanistan than he asked for, and the bill does not in any way impede the strategy or tactics that commanders on the ground in Iraq might want to use to be successful."
