Hints of a Truce in Government Shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner are trying to force each other to bend in their deadlock over the federal debt limit and the partial government shutdown. But there are also hints that they might consider a brief truce in both battles.
The government shutdown entered its ninth day Wednesday. A possible economy-shaking federal default is edging closer.
Even so, Republicans are still demanding talks on deficit reduction and Obama's 2010 health care law as the price for increasing the government's borrowing authority and returning civil servants to work. The president wants Congress to first end the shutdown and extend the debt limit.
On Tuesday, Boehner didn't rule out raising the debt limit and funding government for short periods. Obama said he'd accept short-term extensions too.
