WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner on Thursday said that efforts in Congress to increase borrowing authority will succeed only if there is progress on broad spending reforms that would tackle deficits.

Speaking to reporters, Boehner also said that he expects a fiscal 2011 spending cut bill to pass the House later on Thursday. But he would not say whether the bill can pass without the help of at least some Democrats.
