Joe Biden debt talks to resume Tuesday

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House spokesman Jay Carney on Friday said Vice President Joe Biden's talks with senior lawmakers to break an impasse over lifting the government's debt ceiling will resume next Tuesday.

Carney, speaking to reporters, said he believes the Biden group will be the "vehicle" to get a deal with Republicans over their demand for spending cuts in exchange for voting to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling.
