Obama still seeking biggest possible debt deal-WH

WASHINGTON, July 18 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama is still pushing for the biggest possible deficit reduction package, White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Monday.

He said conversations and communications between the White House and Republican congressional leaders have been continuing. He said there has to be a mechanism in place to ensure the U.S. does not default on its debt obligations.
