With a little more than a day to go before the nation potentially defaults on its debts, there's still no solid plan on the table in Washington.
There was a flurry of activity on Tuesday, but it produced little significant movement.
The House tried twice to craft a proposal to end the shutdown and extend the debt ceiling, only to pull them back because they didn't have enough votes within the GOP to pass them. Now, the Senate has restarted talks of its own.
