Pressure On Senate After House Talks Fail

The pressure is on the Senate to end the fiscal stalemate on Capitol Hill now that talks between President Obama and House Republicans have fizzled.  Speaker John Boehner [[ BAY-nur ]] told his fellow Republicans this morning negotiations have stalled.  The White House wasn't keen on Boehner's proposal to extend the debt ceiling through November 22nd.  The President wanted a longer-term deal.  The Obama administration is now looking to negotiate with Senate Republicans as hope of reaching an agreement with the House dwindles. 

Failure to pass a short-term spending bill forced a government shutdown that's already in its 12th day.  Now, Congress must reach a deal to raise the debt ceiling by October 17th or risk default.
