boehner-sadWith just two days before America hits the debt ceiling deadline, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) announced on Tuesday his desire to raise it.

“The goal here is to increase the debt ceiling,” said Boehner. “Nobody wants to default on our debt.”

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew says the nation will hit its debt limit this Friday, February 7th.

“While we’re doing this we ought to do something about the jobs and the economy,” said Boehner.

Boehner said Republicans have discussed several options for receiving concessions for a debt limit increase but that “no decisions have been made.”
