Biden, congressional leaders likely to meet Tuesday for talks on raising the debt limit

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) — President Joe Biden says he and congressional leaders will likely resume talks on Tuesday at the White House over the debt limit as the nation continues to edge closer to its legal borrowing authority with no agreement in sight. The meeting was initially supposed to be Friday, but was postponed to let the staff-level talks continue along. Administration and congressional officials say the next meeting hasn’t been finalized. Biden told reporters on Sunday that he remains optimistic there will be an agreement on the debt limit. And he indicated he could be open to tougher work requirements for certain government aid programs, which Republicans are proposing as part of the ongoing discussion.
