WASHINGTON (AP) — A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner says President Barack Obama has called the speaker to say he still won’t negotiate on ending the partial government shutdown or raising the nation’s debt limit.

Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck says the call took place Tuesday morning.

The call came as a partial shutdown of the government enters its second week with no sign of ending.

Boehner says he is willing to negotiate budget issues with President Barack Obama without any conditions. But Obama says it’s Congress’ responsibility to pay its bills and that negotiating on these issues would set a dangerous precedent.
