US House Speaker Boehner: last offer still on table

WASHINGTON, July 24 (Reuters) - Republican U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on Sunday that he would prefer to unveil a bipartisan deal to raise the debt ceiling and that his last offer to Democratic President Barack Obama was still on the table.

Boehner said that his offer that included some $800 billion in new tax revenue reforms and massive spending cuts was never withdrawn, often dubbed the “grand bargain,” but that he would move forward on a Republican plan if a bipartisan deal could not be reached.
