WASHINGTON - The United States Congress has just one day left to strike a deal before the government defaults tomorrow.

The Fitch credit rating agency has put the country on a "Ratings Watch," which could result in a downgrade of the nation's credit rating.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Republican leader Mitch McConnell say they hope to have a compromise ready today, which would reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling.

Meanwhile, investors are waiting to see if Congress can avoid our first-ever government default.
