Top US senator warns govt shutdown coming

Top US senator warns govt shutdown coming: "President Barack Obama's top ally in the US Senate warned Thursday that talks on spending cuts were stalled on issues tied to abortion and the environment and that the US government seemed set to shutdown at midnight Friday.
'If this government shuts down -- and it looks like it's headed in that direction,' Republicans will be to blame for insisting on 'matters that have nothing to do' with spending, said Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Reid said that, on spending cuts, 'the numbers are basically there' and both sides are 'extremely close' after aides worked throughout the night following a meeting at the White House late Wednesday."
