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.

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