WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican leaders in the U.S. Congress said Wednesday they would not support tax increases as part of a deficit-reduction plan.

Their comments came shortly after hearing details of President Barack Obama's proposal.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner also said a deficit-cutting plan will have to be in place in order to raise the debt ceiling and allow the government to continue to borrow money.
