On ABC’s This Week, Speaker Boehner contrasted President Obama’s refusal to negotiate with House Republican efforts to keep the government running, provide fairness under ObamaCare and deal with the government’s spending problem.
Making clear that the President is risking a default by refusing to work with Republicans, Boehner said “I’m ready to talk. I’ve been ready to talk.”

(CNN) — House Republicans won’t support raising the federal government’s borrowing limit without new spending cuts from the Obama administration, and the White House risks an unprecedented U.S. default by refusing, House Speaker John Boehner said Sunday.
Speaking six days into a partial government shutdown and 11 days before the Treasury Department expects to hit its statutory debt ceiling, Boehner told ABC’s “This Week” that he wants “a serious conversation” about spending, but no tax increases. Asked if the United States would default on debt payments unless President Barack Obama makes concessions, Boehner said, “That’s the path we’re on.”
“The votes are not in the House to pass a clean debt limit, and the president is risking default by not having a conversation with us,” said Boehner, R-Ohio.
