Boehner Predicts Budget, Debt Deal Will Pass House With Bipartisan Majority

A two-year budget deal that also raises the U.S. debt limit will pass the House with a bipartisan majority, House Speaker John Boehner predicted Tuesday. Boehner said the House will vote on the agreement on Wednesday. The budget deal lifts domestic and defense spending caps and raises the debt limit through March 2017. Some conservative House members have slammed the deal, which would also need to pass the Senate and be signed by President Barack Obama.
