Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner responded to Mr. Obama's speech by acknowledging that the United States must not default on its obligations. But he said the American people will not accept an increase in the U.S. borrowing limit without a significant cut in entitlement programs.

He said the solution to the debt crisis is not complicated, and will require the United States to vow not to spend more money than it takes in.
