Congressional Republicans are aiming for deficit-reduction steps as part of any deal to raise the nation's debt limit but have not decided on a strategy yet, House Speaker John Boehner said on Tuesday. Boehner also said House Republicans need to tackle jobs and the overall economy as part of any deal to raise the debt ceiling. While we are doing this, we ought to do something about jobs and the economy, about the drivers of our debt.
