Senate Optimistic About Budget Deal

Senate leaders say they're still optimistic they can present a bipartisan plan today to end the partial government shutdown and avert a possible U.S. default by raising the debt limit.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senate leaders say they're still optimistic they can present a bipartisan plan today to end the partial government shutdown and avert a possible U.S. default by raising the debt limit.

Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew has said if Congress doesn't act by tomorrow, the government will lose its ability to borrow money.
