U.S. Senate getting involved with the debt ceiling debate

WASHINGTON, D.C.(WNAX)- The US Senate is now becoming involved in dealings over the federal debt ceiling.

Rounds says the President and Senate democrats have to make a response.

Rounds says the President needs to make the next move.

The White House announced the President will meet with members of the House and Senate next Tuesday to talk about the debt ceiling proposal. The debt is now at just over thirty-one trillion dollars.
