WASHINGTON (CNN) – The midnight oil was burning at the White House last night.  President Obama, Majority Leader Reid and Speaker Boehner met at the White House for 90 minutes to negotiate a possible budget deal to avoid a government shut down.

"I remain confident that if we're serious about getting something done, we should be able to complete a deal and get it passed and avert a shutdown," Obama said. "But it's going to require a sufficient sense of urgency from all parties involved" to prevent a shutdown that "could have real effects on everyday Americans."

But the bottom line this morning ...there is still no deal.

The president's schedule for the day is after the jump.   So far no other budget meeting has been planned for the president.
