Boehner says will not cut bad spending deal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on Tuesday that he would not cut a “bad deal” on spending with Democrats to keep the government operating beyond Friday.

“We want the largest spending cuts that are possible,” Boehner told reporters after a White House meeting with President Barack Obama aimed at averting a government shutdown.
