Outgoing Speaker John BoehnerJohn Andrew Boehner4 reasons Mike Pompeo will succeed at Foggy Bottom The misunderstood reason Congress can’t get its job done GOP sees McCarthy moving up — if GOP loses the House MORE (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.

“It’s just a matter of if there is a way to get some things done so I don’t burden my successor, I’m gonna get it done,” added Boehner with his likely successor, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthyKevin Owen McCarthyGOP leaders see finish line on omnibus deal Omnibus not expected to include online sales tax bill Spending deal talks down to toughest issues, lawmakers say MORE (R-Calif.), standing nearby.

Congress must vote later this fall to raise the debt ceiling or risk defaulting on the nation’s financial obligations.

“We’re gonna take this one day at a time and do what we can on behalf of the American people,” the Speaker said, “and I’m not going to change my process at all.”
