WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is set to meet with Senate Democratic leaders at the White House as the impasse drags on over the government shutdown and the nation's credit limit.
The meeting was arranged after the Senate failed on a test vote to advance legislation that would have raised the government's current $16.7 trillion debt ceiling for one year.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and the Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, are holding talks to break the logjam.
But no solution seems imminent.
