WASHINGTON, DC -

Senate leaders hit a snag today in their efforts to end a political stalemate that has idled over 350,000 federal workers and presented the country with the threat of a debt default.

Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid told colleagues from the floor Sunday that "Americans want Congress to compromise."

Yet Reid and his Republican counterpart, Kentucky's Mitch McConnell, remained at odds over spending issues.

McConnell insisted that a solution was readily available. He cited a proposal from a bipartisan group of 12 senators that would re-open the government and fund it at current levels for six month while raising the debt limit through Jan. 31.
