House Speaker John Boehner (BAY'-nur) tells "Fox News Sunday"
that he's hoping for a bipartisan approach, but he's ready to move
forward with a Republican plan if a deal can't be reached.
The speaker flatly rejects the White House insistence that the
plan get the country through the next election instead of offering
a short-term fix while a longer-term solution can be worked out. He
says it's "not physically possible to do all of this in one
step."
White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley told NBC the president
will veto any last-minute debt package from Congress unless it
extends the nation's borrowing limit into 2013.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner (GYT'-nur) says despite all
the rhetoric, he's confident a deal will be reached. (backslash)
The government runs out of cash to pay its bills a week from
Tuesday.
