I hear more from Obama about what he wants that what he’s willing to concede. First it’s an increase in tax rates and now it’s an increase in the debt ceiling:

BUSINESS INSIDER – In “off-the-cuff” remarks at the Business Roundtable in Washington, D.C, today, President Barack Obama was firm in a stance that he would not be “playing that game” of negotiating the raising of the debt ceiling. He said a rise in the debt ceiling would have to be a part of a deal to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff.”

Obama quoted John Engler, the president of the Business Roundtable, who charged that it’s “not a good weapon for anything except destroying our own credit rating.”

“We are not going to play that game again this year,” he said. “… We’ve got to break that habit before it starts.”
