The Washington political website and news source Roll Call is quoting Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as saying that there will be no budget negotiations until the government is reopened.  "The Nevada Democrat also said the Senate would evaluate the House legislation when it gets It." said the Roll Call story.

The Republican led House is considering a six-week extension of the debt limit. The proposal would defer the government's potential default six weeks but would not end the partial government shutdown and would prohibit the Treasury from using so called 'extraordinary measures' to extend the government's funding ability beyond the new deadline. A vote on the measure could come tomorrow or Saturday.
