Boehner: no decision on provisions of debt ceiling legislation

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker John Boehner said on Thursday there was no decision yet among his fellow Republicans on whether to add any conditions to raising the U.S. debt ceiling but he repeated there would be no default.

He added a debt limit hike bill had to be passed by late February.

While Boehner told reporters “no decisions have been made” on whether a simple debt limit hike bill would be voted on or whether it would be accompanied by additional legislation, he added, “We do not want to default on our debt and we’re not going to default on our debt.”
