House GOP meeting on budget talks

Republican leaders have called the party's House rank and file to a highly unusual late night meeting in the Capitol to discuss budget negotiations with President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats.

The meeting comes about three two hours before a midnight deadline to avoid the first government shutdown in 15 years.

Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling says that at this point there is no deal.

But negotiators have been exchanging offers all day.
