Speaker John A. Boehner said authority sought by President Barack Obama to extend IMF loans to Ukraine isn’t needed.
“This IMF money isn’t necessary for dealing with this Ukraine crisis,” the Ohio Republican told reporters at his weekly press conference Wednesday. “So I think what the Senate ought to do is take up the House-passed loan guarantee package and they could move it today. Beyond that, we’ll see what the Senate actually does.”
