Day 14

The United States moved perilously closer to an economy-rattling default and a partial government shutdown entered its 14th day

The Senate's top two leaders both expressed optimism Monday that they
were closing in on an agreement to prevent a national financial default
and reopen the government after a two-week partial shutdown.

Obama invited the bipartisan leadership of the House and Senate to the White House Monday afternoon but then delayed the meeting to give congressional leaders more time to haggle over a deal.
