Boehner to Insist on Deep Cuts for Debt Increase

Saturday, 23 Jul 2011 10:50 AM


House Speaker John Boehner will stick to his demand for spending cuts greater than the size of an increase in the U.S. debt limit at an 11 a.m. EDT meeting with President Barack Obama on Saturday.

"It would be terribly unfortunate if the President was willing to veto a debt limit increase simply because the timetable prescribed would not be the ideal one for his re-election campaign," the aide said.
