Boehner didn't voice confidence that they'll get there.

"We'll see," he said. "Listen, I don't do the vote counting. [House Majority Whip] Kevin [McCarthy] does. But I'll take him off the hot seat. Listen, the goal here is to increase the debt ceiling. Nobody wants to default on our debt. But while we're doing this, we've got to do something about either jobs and the economy, about the drivers of the debt."
