Obama to Meet House, Senate Leaders for Shutdown Talks

President Obama will meet with congressional leaders Wednesday evening at the White House to discuss an end to the government shutdown.

On the shutdown’s second day, Obama invited congressional leaders to the White House to discuss reopening the government and also raising the debt limit.

This would be the first time Obama has met with congressional leaders to negotiate on a government funding bill, and is also the first time the White House has indicated it wants to link funding the government to talks on raising the debt ceiling.
