WASHINGTON - Speaker John Boehner and other top House Republican leaders intend to vote for the bipartisan agreement worked out in the Senate to avoid a financial default and reopen the government.
Officials said Wednesday that the leaders made their intentions clear at a closed-door meeting of rank and file Republicans.
Boehner in a statement said the House, quote, "fought with everything" it had to persuade President Barack Obama to engage in bipartisan negotiations on the country's debt and the 3-year-old health care law. He vowed that the fight will continue.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the internal deliberations.
