U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) (R) shouts, "This isn't some damn game" during a news conference with fellow House Republicans at the U.S. Capitol in Washington October 4, 2013. Boehner told Republicans in the House of Representatives on Friday that he will not rely on Democratic votes to pass a "clean" debt ceiling increase without spending cuts, lawmakers said. Boehner, in a meeting with House Republicans, denied media reports that he intended to bring such a "clean" debt ceiling bill to the House floor, said Representative Shelly Moore Capito of West Virginia.
