WASHINGTON — House Republican leaders shifted the budget battle on Thursday to a potentially more consequential fight over raising the government’s borrowing limit, rolling out conditions for a debt-ceiling increase pulled from three years of frustration over efforts to roll back regulations and undo President Obama’s first-term achievements.
House Speaker John A. Boehner also made clear that he is not ready just yet to give up a policy fight that could shut down the federal government on Tuesday. Asked whether he would put a stopgap spending bill to a vote free of Republican policy prescriptions, he answered, “I do not see that happening.”
