No one is more concerned about making sure the debt limit is raised than traders and investors on Wall Street. They are worried that if the $14.3 trillion ceiling isn’t lifted, the U.S. government will default on its debt, sparking another financial crisis.

Boehner will say there needs to be “an honest conversation” about Medicare, because it’s on an “unsustainable path if changes are not made,” sources familiar with the speech tell Politico.
He’s also expected to voice his opinion that the deficit be cut immediately, as opposed to Democrats’ wish for deficit targets.
