House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio listens during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013, after a closed-door GOP meeting to announce that House Republicans will advance legislation to temporarily extend the government's ability to borrow money to meet its financial obligations.
