Time is running out to raise the debt ceiling before the U.S. begins to default on its obligations, a deal appears to be nowhere in sight, and Democrats and Republicans only seem to be getting angrier at each other. 
So, who's to blame for the debt lid gridlock in Washington?  "The Early Show on Saturday Morning" put together a panel of independent voters to address the question.

"The Republicans want spending cuts. The Democrats want to preserve the safety net. Obama believes that his job is to stitch together a solution that draws from both. Put another way, he's trying to be the non-partisan President. And no doubt, the President's advisors hope that independent voters - who decided the last two elections - (actually three, since independents in open primary and caucus states picked Obama over Hillary Clinton) will see him that way."
