House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) affirmed that if a deal to avert the fiscal cliff includes raising the debt limit, then it must come with a “price tag,” at a news conference Thursday.
“If we’re gonna talk about the debt limit in this, then there’s gonna be some price tag associated with it,” Boehner said.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has said that raising the debt limit must be part of the deal.
