Boehner Seeking a 'Grand Bargain'

Robert Costa: "House Republicans tell me that Speaker John Boehner wants to craft a 'grand bargain' on fiscal issues as part of the debt-limit deliberations, and during a series of meetings on Wednesday, he urged colleagues to stick with him."

Big caveat: "What's not being discussed: increased taxes or revenues. From what I hear, this combined deal is being softly and informally sold to members; Wednesday's talks were abotu gradually getting them engaged in the prospect. And it's all about what the GOP could win - there's little about what they'll give in return."

Wall Street Journal: "Republicans fear that their negotiating position is weakening headed into the debt ceiling fight."
