Speaking on the Senate floor early Saturday evening, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid dismissed a suggestion made just hours earlier by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell that Democrats and Republicans were inching closer to striking a deal to raise the deficit limit.

"It's fair to say that the engagement there is not in any meaningful way," Reid said. "Republican leaders still refuse to negotiate in good faith."

Reid said the notion both sides are making progress toward reaching an agreement is "not true."
