Obama says no negotiation with Congress on debt ceiling

WASHINGTON, Dec. 20 (UPI) -- U.S. President Barack Obama said Friday he will not negotiate with Congress over raising the federal borrowing limit in 2014.

"No, we're not going to negotiate with Congress to pay bills that it has accrued," Obama said at his final White House news conference of the year.

Obama credited House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray, D-Wash., for doing "a good job in trying to narrow the difference and pass a budget I can sign," and said congressional Republicans had engaged in too much "brinksmanship" on critical issues.
