FARMINGVILLE - ? With time running out for our nation?s debt crisis, officials say the government may have to approve a temporary measure.

President Obama says he would agree to a short-term increase in the nation?s borrowing limit to avoid default. Obama wants lawmakers to keep working on a deficit reduction plan.

Some Senate Democrats say there just is not enough time to pass a package of spending cuts and tax increases before the August 2 deadline.

This morning, Congressman Tim Bishop met with seniors in Farmingville to discuss how the crisis may affect them.
