Obama to Boehner: no negotiation on debt limit hike

A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner said President Barack Obama called the Ohio Republican Friday afternoon and said don't expect negotiations with the White House over raising the nation's debt limit.

"The president called the speaker this evening to tell him he wouldn't negotiate with him on the debt limit," said Brendan Buck,  the Boehner spokesman. "Given the long history of using debt limit increases to achieve bipartisan deficit reduction and economic reforms, the speaker was disappointed but told the president that the two chambers of Congress will chart the path ahead. It was a brief call."
