House Speaker John Boehner responded to criticism voiced by President Obama about walking out of the debt talks. Though, Boehner remains confident a deal can be reached between lawmakers to avoid a default on government loans.

Boehner accused Obama of "moving the goal posts" by demanding $400 billion in tax increases on top of about $800 billion in revenues in a last-minute push for a big deal.
