Obama Calls Leaders to the White House

President Obama has invited Speaker John Boehner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to the White House later today to discuss reopening the government and raising the debt ceiling.

Wall Street Journal: "Mr. Obama will use the meeting -- the first with congressional leaders since the shutdown began -- to press leaders to reopen the government and reiterate his position that he won't negotiate on the debt limit or under the threat of a continued shutdown."

The meeting is expected at 5:30 pm.
