Boehner: Any increase in the debt limit must be accompanied by even greater spending cuts
Missed by MSM: Boehner restated the "Boehner rule" that any debt ceiling hike must be "paid for" by savings of same amount. Big Deal.

Anti-tax activist Grover Norquist observes that Rep. John Boehner, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, today re-affirmed his commitment to the “Boehner rule”:
I’ve made it clear to the President that every time we get to the debt limit, we need cuts and reforms that are greater than the increase in the debt limit. It’s the only way to leverage the political process to produce more change than what it would if left alone.
