WASHINGTON  - US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is not interested in negotiating a short-term deficit-reduction and debt limit extension deal and wants a long-term package, Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson told Reuters.




"Senator Reid will not agree to a short-term deal and it is our understanding that the White House will not sign it," Jentleson said.




The Reid aide's remarks came after House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner cut off negotiations with President Barack Obama and announced he instead would focus his efforts on reaching a deal with the Senate.
