JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon and nearly a dozen other Wall Street bankers met with President Obama on Wednesday to discuss possible solutions to the government shutdown.

The gathering went nowhere and the US government will remain shut down. Nearly 1 million government employees have felt the consequences of the political spat and are unsure when they would be able to return to work. US Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) has more on the stalemate from Capitol Hill.
