Speaker of the House John Boehner has told Republicans he will not allow the United States to default on its debt. He asserted that he will use all means necessary, including using GOP and Democratic votes to increase the debt ceiling. He used the appropriate tone of shock when speaking of bipartisanship. Boehner would like to combine deals that would pass budget legislation and raise the debt ceiling, but but Obama has vowed he will not negotiate on a budget deal until the debt ceiling has been raised. There is currently a proposal in congress would fund the government, but repeal a tax on medical devices. Obamacare would be left unchanged.
