House Speaker Ryan: Congress will raise debt ceiling, has many options

WASHINGTON, Aug 24 (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said on Thursday that Congress will pass legislation to raise the federal debt ceiling, noting that lawmakers have a number of options for avoiding default. “We will pass legislation to make sure we pay our debts and we will not hit the debt ceiling. We’ll do this before the debt ceiling,” Ryan said during a tax reform event at a Boeing plant in Washington state. “There are many different options in front of us on how we achieve that,” he added. “We pay our debts in this country. We will continue to do so.” (Reporting by David Morgan and David Alexander; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
