(Washington, DC) -- GOP House Speaker John Boehner calls himself disappointed by President Obama's negotiating stand. In a statement near his Capitol office, Boehner said the President's position is "not sustainable." In an earlier news conference, President Obama said he is willing to negotiate with House Republicans but not until they agree to end the shutdown and raise the federal debt ceiling. The U.S. government faces possible default if the debt ceiling is not raised by October 17th.
