Debt-limit hike must include spending cuts -Boehner

WASHINGTON, Jan 6 (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker John Boehner said on Thursday that any move to increase the United States’ $14.3 trillion debt limit must be accompanied by spending cuts.

“The American people will not stand for such an increase unless it is accompanied by meaningful action by the President and Congress to cut spending and end the job-killing spending binge in Washington,” Boehner said in a prepared statement.
