Washington and the nation are staring down an Aug. 2 deadline to raise the debt limit or face national default.
House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and President Barack Obama are struggling to reach an elusive compromise, with each pleading his case on Monday night. In a prime-time address, Obama pleaded for compromise and urged Americans to contact their lawmakers.

Boehner, in a nationally televised rebuttal, said he had given "my all" to work out a deal with Obama. "The president would not take yes for an answer," he said.
