Ryan Rejects White House Push for ‘Clean’ Bill on Debt Limit

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan said Republicans won’t vote for an increase in the nation’s debt limit unless it is packaged with additional spending cuts.

The Wisconsin Republican, who won House approval last week of his plan to cut more than $6 trillion in spending over a decade, denied a claim made by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner that congressional leaders have pledged to raise the debt ceiling.
