John Boehner on debt talks with White House
Republican House Speaker John Boehner has walked away from crunch debt ceiling talks at the White House with US President Barack Obama.
Mr Obama said Mr Boehner had rejected an "extraordinarily fair deal" that would have included $650bn (£400bn) of cuts to entitlement programmes.
"Dealing with the White House is like dealing with a bowl of Jell-O", Mr Boehner told reporters.
