Statement by Speaker Boehner on Debt Limit Discussions
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) released the following statement today regarding ongoing debt limit discussions with the White House:
"Despite good-faith efforts to find common ground, the White House will not pursue a bigger debt reduction agreement without tax hikes. I believe the best approach may be to focus on producing a smaller measure, based on the cuts identified in the Biden-led negotiations, that still meets our call for spending reforms and cuts greater than the amount of any debt limit increase."
