This morning, Senate Democrats are meeting with President Obama to discuss a possible stopgap debt deal.

This came after a long evening meeting between President Obama and about 20 House Republicans.

The House members presented the President with an offer to pass a temporary extension of the debt ceiling in exchange for substantive negotiations on the budget.

This plan would not address the partial government shutdown that began last week.
