Geithner: Time "running out" to get debt deal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner went to the U.S. Capitol on Thursday with a warning: time is running out to craft a bipartisan deal to raise the U.S. debt limit before an August 2 deadline.

“We are running out of time,” Geithner told reporters after a closed-door meeting with President Barack Obama’s fellow Democrats in the Senate. Geithner said Democrats are united to make sure that the United States pays its bills.
