House Republicans stressed “fairness for all” at a brief Tuesday morning news conference, saying they want to “find a way forward in a bipartisan way.” That means they will not wait for a Senate deal-in-the-making, but will pass their own proposal to end the current impasse on government funding and the debt limit.

“There are a lot of opinions about what direction to go. There have been no decisions about exactly what we will do,” House Speaker John Boehner said. “But we’re going to continue to work with our members on both sides of the aisle to try to make sure that there’s no issue of default and to get our government reopened.”
