WASHINGTON - House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi says no progress has been made toward ending the government shutdown because "it's very hard to negotiate with the Republicans when they can't negotiate with themselves."

She said Democrats agreed weeks ago to the GOP money figure for stopgap spending, but Republicans have stalled since then.

Pelosi says to get the government up and fully running again, "it will take some coming together on the Republican side."

The California Democrat said the expiration of the government's borrowing authority is a frightening prospect, saying that "we have to find a path" but have not found the ability to do so.
