House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, leaves his office on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Oct. 10,2103, for the White House and a meeting with President Barack Obama regarding the ongoing budget fight. Facing a fresh deadline, Boehner said Thursday that Republicans would vote to extend the government’s ability to borrow money for six weeks _ but only if President Barack Obama first agrees to fresh negotiations on spending cuts.
