President Barack Obama is expected to invite all of Congress to meet with him at the White House this week, nine days into a government shutdown, and eight days before the debt ceiling is reached.
House Democrats will head there Wednesday at 4:35 p.m. for an hour-long session. The White House sent an emailed invitation early Wednesday morning. Senate Democrats have also been invited. Sources say that House and Senate Republicans will also get invited to the other side of Pennsylvania Avenue.
