Bank of France Governor Christian Noyer warned of dire consequences if there was no solution, while US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew told the International Monetary Fund last week that Washington understood its reputation as a safe harbor was at risk.

As the new plan is pressed forward there could be further Republican resistance, first in the Senate and then on the approach that will be adopted by the House.

Boehner faces Tea Party backed conservatives who oppose almost any deal that does not include anti Obamacare provisions or which fails to rein in federal spending.

Number two House Republican Eric Cantor said leadership has “not made any decision” yet on selling the potential deal to the rank and file.

“We will meet with our members in the morning and determine the best path forward,” he said.
