Friday, 29 Jul 2011 07:46 PM

WASHINGTON - The White House Friday urged lawmakers to begin immediate work on a compromise to lift the U.S. debt limit after passage of a bill by Republicans in the House of Representatives it said was "dead on arrival."

"Now that yet another political exercise is behind us, with time dwindling, leaders need to start working together immediately to reach a compromise that avoids default and lays the basis for balanced deficit reduction," White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement.
