Boehner, at his earlier press conference, kept up the pressure: “Listen, there’s never been a president in our history that did not negotiate over the debt limit,” he said. “Never. Not once. As a matter of fact, President Obama negotiated with me over the debt limit in 2011." Boehner did not spell out what he's looking for in such negotiations, notes the Washington Post. A short-term increase in the debt ceiling, perhaps? "I'm not drawing any lines in the sand," he said. Obama, meanwhile, plans a news conference for 2pm Eastern, notes Politico.
