Obama losing sleep due to debt deal

President Barack Obama is deeply involved in trying to win a debt deal and his White House was working flat out.

Obama aide Valerie Jarrett told Reuters Insider, “He’s getting absolutely no sleep. He’s working tirelessly, meeting with his economic team, doing a lot of outreach, exploring all kinds of possibilities for compromise.”

White House budget chief Jack Lew and top Obama economic aide Gene Sperling have also reinforced Obama in reaching out to Congress. Daley and Jarrett, both with business backgrounds, have been the president’s top emissaries to the business community, where concerns over the debt ceiling have grown.
