Obama to meet with bank heads first, then congressional leaders

|By:, SA News Editor

Big bank bosses - among them Dimon, Blankfein, Moynihan, Gorman, and Stumpf - are set to meet with the President at noon today to discuss the government shutdown, and maybe more importantly the looming debt ceiling. Also included in the meeting will be AIG chief Bob Benmosche.

In other news, Obama has invited congressional leaders from both sides of the aisle to come to the White House later today.

The latter tidbit was good for a 40 point move in the Dow, though it remains lower by 0.6%.
