Boehner: Obama putting US on 'dangerous path'

House Speaker John Boehner again called for President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to negotiate with him about reopening the government and increasing the nation's debt limit.

In a brief statement before reporters, Boehner said that by refusing to negotiate Obama and Reid "are putting our country on a pretty dangerous path."

He asserted there has "never" been a president who refused to negotiate on the debt limit, pointing out that Obama negotiated with him in 2011 about the debt limit.

"The way to resolve this is to sit down and have a conversation about our differences."

Senate Democrats are planning to introduce a "clean" measure to raise the borrowing cap, in effect challenging Republicans to mount a filibuster against it.
