Greece's Prime Minister Antonis Samaras met with international debt inspectors monday, hoping to reach an agreement with them on the details of $15.3 billion worth of austerity cuts. The inspectors from the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund voiced objections on sunday to some of the measures.

During a break in the talks, Greece's finance minister said to reporters that the talks were quote, "difficult." The massive austerity program is needed to secure funding for a bailout to keep Greece from going bankrupt. Speculation is growing across the European Union that Greece won't be able to meet its obligations, forcing the country to leave the E.U.
