Obama challenges Republicans to compromise on debt

President Barack Obama warned Monday there would be no deal on raising the U.S. government's debt limit if Republicans do not compromise and said he would not sign a short-term extension _ raising the stakes on volatile negotiations with the clock ticking toward a Aug. 2 deadline.
"I don't see a path to a deal if they don't budge. Period," the president said in a challenge to his political opponents, accusing Republicans of having a "my way or the highway" posture.
Asked whether or not he would veto legislation temporarily increasing the debt ceiling, the president said: "I will not sign a 30-day, or 60-day, or 90-day extension."
