Senator Reid: Moving forward with debt limit bill

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday said that he "cannot wait any longer" for the Republican-led House of Representatives to act on a debt limit increase and he will begin taking steps to move legislation.

Reid, a Democrat, also called on Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell to immediately work with him on a compromise bill that could be enacted before an August 2 deadline.
