With debate now over about the fiscal 2011 budget, attention is shifting to the issue of raising the debt limit. And Republican House leaders warn their colleagues won’t pass a bill unless it includes more spending cuts to accompany the debt ceiling increase, The Hill reports.

He knows that failing to raise the ceiling would have "serious consequences for the worldwide economy." But that doesn’t mean his Republican colleagues will simply “roll over" on the vote.
