WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican leaders in the
U.S. House of Representatives wrote a memo to members on late
Friday saying there is no budget deal yet.
"We would like to clear up some confusion and relay that
there has not yet been a deal reached. The negotiations are
ongoing," the leaders wrote. The memo was read to reporters by
Republican aide amid reports a deal may be close.
