Reid said Cantor's conduct during the sensitive White House talks have shown "he shouldn't even be at the table." Reid said other congressional leaders are negotiating in good faith as an Aug. 2 deadline approaches for raising the debt limit.

That's when the government would begin defaulting if no agreement is reached to raise the borrowing limit. Leaders of both parties and the business world believe a default would be catastrophic.

Wednesday's talks ended with Obama and Cantor clashing and the president leaving the room. The talks are scheduled to resume later today.
