Boehner: Must address spending in debt limit fight
Thursday - 9/12/2013, 5:00pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Speaker John Boehner says Republicans will insist on curbing spending in the fight over the debt limit.
President Barack Obama has said he won't negotiate over extending the government's ability to borrow money when it runs out, probably next month.
But Boehner says that presidents of both parties have agreed to budget constraints as the price for extending the debt limit, and that this time is no different.
The Ohio Republican spoke at a news conference Thursday.
Boehner is also downplaying his inability so far to find enough votes for preventing a government shutdown on Oct. 1. He says GOP leaders are aware of the deadline and will find a solution.
