Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democratic Senator Harry Reid says Congress leaders have come up with a new bipartisan deal to avoid default and end the government shutdown. 

The deal would reopen the government through January 15 and increases the nation's debt limit through February 7. 

Republican Senator Ted Cruz says he won't delay a vote on bipartisan budget deal, but he plans on voting against the bill. Cruz says he wouldn't use Senate delaying tactics to stall the legislation.
