House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said on Sunday that the country was on a path toward default if President Barack Obama continues to refuse to negotiate over raising the debt limit.
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” host George Stephanopoulos asked Boehner, “If [Obama] continues to refuse to negotiate, the country is going to default”?
“That’s the path we’re on,” Boehner replied. “I’m willing to sit down with the president, but his refusal to negotiate is putting our country at risk.”
