Boehner Will Insist on Cuts to Raise Debt Limit

Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is "pushing back against White House demands for no-frills legislation on the federal borrowing cap, is calling for another round of spending cuts beyond the sequester as part of any agreement to raise the debt limit," Roll Call reports.
Said Boehner: "I believe that if we're going to increase the debt limit, there ought to be cuts and reforms in place that are greater than the increase in the debt limit."
