House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) says that the House won’t pass a “clean” increase in the nation’s debt ceiling — and that the U.S. is on the “path to default” if President Barack Obama won’t negotiate on an increase.
“We’re not going to pass a clean debt limit increase,” Boehner told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

“I told the president, there’s no way we’re going to pass one. 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.”

Later, Stephanopoulos asked: “So are you saying that if he continues to refuse to negotiate, the country is going to default?”

“That’s the path we’re on,” Boehner said.
