Boehner Warns About Government Shutdown

As we noted earlier, it look like House Speaker John Boehner wants a budget deal.

According to The Hill, Boehner told reporters that shutting down the federal government would be more costly than keeping it running and his party is against a shutdown.

Said Boehner: "If you shut the government down, it'll end up costing more than
 you'll save because you interrupt contracts -- there are a lot of
 problems with the idea of shutting the government down -- it is not the
 goal."
