Boehner Opposes Delay in Spending Cuts Without Changes

House Speaker John Boehner said he will oppose any delay of $1.2 trillion in automatic U.S. spending reductions set to begin March 1 unless Congress replaces them with other “cuts and reforms.”

Boehner said it is time for Senate Democrats and President Barack Obama to come up with a plan to replace the spending cuts. He said he is “more than willing” to work with them, as he reiterated his opposition to tax-revenue increases in such a proposal.
