House Speaker John Boehner's office released a video Thursday morning chiding President Obama for his unwillingness to negotiate over raising the nation's debt ceiling by noting his administration negotiated a solution to Syria's chemical weapons stockpile with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"Why is the Obama administration willing to negotiate with Putin on Syria ... But not with Congress to address Washington's spending problem?" Boehner's office asks in the ad.
Obama and his top aides have repeatedly stated they want Congress to pass a clean debt limit increase. The nation will hit its borrowing capacity sometime next month.
House Republican leaders on Wednesday said they will demand concessions in return for increasing the borrowing authority, including a one-year delay of Obama's signature health-care law.
