WASHINGTON–Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) is tweeting live from a bipartisan meeting with senators Tuesday morning on the stalled deficit/debt/budget talks as the Aug. 2 default deadline looms. The 25 GOP, 21 Democratic senators in the room could be talking compromise, McCaskill reports over @clairemc
In the room. 25 Rs,21Ds, 1 I here. Folks are coming and going but it’s basically 50/50. Could this be the moment that we compromise?

I can’t tell you how thrilling it is to be in a room with BOTH Rs and Ds working on our debt problem. Gang of 5 plus 50 Senators.
