(CNN) - House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Friday that there is no agreement on a deal to raise the debt ceiling "in private or in public."
"It's not like there's some imminent deal about to happen," Boehner said. "There are serious disagreements" about how to deal with the problem. "This is a Rubik's Cube that we haven't quite worked out yet."
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Virginia, cited the new jobs report as a key reason why House Republicans won't back a tax increase as part of deal to raise the debt ceiling.
The new jobs report is evidence that "it does not make sense for Americans to suffer under higher taxes in an economy like this," Cantor said.
On Friday Boehner said "a debt limit increase that raises taxes or fails to make serious spending cuts won't pass the House."
