News Summary: Boehner says House won't pass 'clean' spending bill nixing 'defund Obamacare'

Associated Press

NO CLEAN BILL: House Republicans will not simply pass a temporary spending bill from the Democratic Senate after it is shorn clean of a tea party plan to "defund Obamacare," House Speaker John Boehner said.

LASTEST AIM A DELAY: Boehner still doesn't expect a government shutdown to occur. House GOP leaders are set to unveil legislation to lift the government's borrowing cap, but only if the new health care law is delayed for a year.

NO MORE TALKING: President Barack Obama again vowed he won't negotiate over the debt ceiling measure.
