House Speaker John Boehner released the following statement following Senate passage of the debt deal:

"This is a positive step forward that begins to rein in federal spending, but it's only a step.  We should save the celebration for when a Balanced Budget Amendment is ratified, the deficit is fixed, and our economy has returned to creating jobs.

 "I congratulate my friend Senator McConnell on his remarkable leadership in guiding this legislation through the Senate."
