**FILE** House Speaker John Boehner (center), Ohio Republican, speaks Jan. 23, 2013, during a news conference on Capitol Hill to discuss the debt limit. The House overwhelmingly passed a bill earlier in the day to permit the government to borrow enough money to avoid a first-time default for at least four months, defusing a looming crisis setting up a springtime debate over taxes, spending and the deficit. From left are Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Washington Republican; Dave Camp, Michigan Republican and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman; and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican.
