Good Luck.
more than ten days of stalemate the U.S., things have finally begun to start moving. President Barack Obama and the Republican Speaker the House of Representatives, John Boehner, sat for talks Thursday about the impasse the partial U.S. government shutdown and the looming debt crisis. Their discussions didn't lead to any certain outcome, but analysts are taking a positive note that talks are happening. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said the talks were "very useful" and "clarifying". Hopes are that the two sides will agree a temporary increase to the $16.7 trillion U.S. debt limit. Failure to do so by October 17 could have dire consequences the global economy.
