THE HILL: Boehner open to raising debt limit. Of course he is.

Outgoing Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday wouldn’t rule out a vote to raise the nation’s borrowing limit before he quits Congress at the end of October.

Conservatives, who pressured Boehner to resign, would try to attach a legislative rider to any effort to hike the debt limit, possibly including a provision to block funding for Planned Parenthood.

“We’ll have to see. There’s a number of issues we’re gonna have to try to deal with over the coming month, but I’m not going to change my decision making process in any way,” Boehner told reporters when asked about the debt limit.

I love how we have to avoid default . . . by raising the borrowing limit. This will end well.
