Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy leaves at a EU Budget summit at the European Council building for a break in Brussels on Friday, Feb. 8, 2013. European Union leaders closed in on a deal that would cut the bloc's budget for the first time in history and deliver a strong message that years of expanding EU powers were on the wane. If a deal emerges Friday, the budget would still need to be ratified by the European Parliament, and early signs suggest that may prove problematic. (AP Photo/Geert Vanden Wijngaert)
