House GOP may try to link debt ceiling approval to changes to health-care law
Washington Post

House Republicans were still struggling Tuesday to find consensus on how to handle their upcoming debt-limit negotiations with the White House, but they seem increasingly determined to avoid any kind of dramatic showdown with the president this time.

“We should bring up a clean debt ceiling, let the Democrats pass it and just move on,” said Rep. Raúl R. Labrador (R-Idaho). “Our constituents are fed up with the political theater. If we’re not going to fight for something specific, we might as well let the Democrats own it.”
