WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House spokesman Jay Carney said Friday he still believes it is possible to get a debt deal completed to meet the Aug. 2 default deadline.

"We still believe that we can get this done in time to meet the deadline of August 2nd," Carney told reporters, saying there needs to be a compromise agreement to break a partisan stalemate.

Carney reiterated that the White House would consider agreeing to lift the debt ceiling for a few days if needed to finish a deal. (Reporting by Steve Holland, Laura MacInnis, Tabassum Zakaria)
