Senate Leaders Optimistic on Deal

"Top Senate leaders said they were within striking distance of a deal to sidestep a looming debt crisis and reopen the government two weeks after a partisan deadlock forced it to shutter," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"Senators signaled a bipartisan resolution could come as soon as Monday afternoon, when top congressional leaders are scheduled to meet with President Obama."

Politico reports the deal would "reopen the government until Jan. 15 and raise the national debt limit until Feb. 15. Several people familiar with the matter expected that a deal could be announced Monday, though its prospects in the GOP-led House are far from certain."
