Obama adviser expects new debt ceiling guidance

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House senior adviser David Plouffe said Thursday the Treasury Department could provide new guidance on the deadline for raising the debt ceiling as early as Friday.

But he predicted on NBC's "Today" show that new guidance would not alter the current August 2 date, by which the Treasury has said the United States could default on debt without a congressional vote to raise the statutory limit.
