With the debt limit crisis looming, President Obama has made it clear he doesn’t want to negotiate with Republicans, even though the country’s deficit is in the trillions.
House Speaker John Boehner said the president is “stiff-arming” Congress and the American people by refusing to find a solution to problems dogging the economy.
“Attaching deficit reduction measures to a debt limit increase is a common-sense policy that presidents of both parties have used for decades,” Boehner’s website says.
“Even President Obama worked with us two years ago in the debt limit negotiations to put controls on spending,” Boehner said on the website.
This year shouldn’t be different, the website says.
