    Washington (CNN) -- There were news conferences and a high-level phone call between President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner, but no immediate sign of progress on reopening the government a week into a partial shutdown or reaching a deal to avoid the first-ever U.S. default next week.

    Obama called Boehner on Tuesday morning, and the White House then announced the president would make a statement and take some questions from reporters at 2 p.m. ET.

    I love how liberals are chomping at the bit to use the 14th amendment to usurp the congresses role in the matter

    Did a little more reading on what was said.

    All oBumble did was call him this morning, to remind him he was not going to negotiate.

    Obama issues debt-ceiling warning; Boehner 'hopeful' for talks soon

    Washington (CNN) -- End the government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling -- even for a short period -- and I'll negotiate, President Barack Obama said Tuesday.

    At a news conference, Obama indicated Republicans could essentially set the agenda for the negotiations they are demanding, but only if Congress agrees first to a short-term spending plan to fund the government and to raise the federal borrowing limit to avoid a possible first-ever U.S. default next week.
