Deal to end shutdown predicted for Tuesday
Washington - There is no deal to end the government shutdown or raise the debt ceiling but lawmakers say today is likely to be the day both get done.
Aides for Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell predict the two will reach an agreement sometime today to reopen the government and allow the U.S. Treasury to continue borrowing at normal levels through mid-February.
The deal reportedly does not include any changes to the Affordable Care Act, which had been a sticking point for Republicans during the fight over finances.
Many House conservatives say they're unhappy with some of the framework for the deal. However, they said they'd wait to see the full proposal before deciding whether to vote for or against it.
