Boehner skeptical of White House meeting: aide

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner is likely to attend a Thursday White House meeting with President Barack Obama to discuss the debt limit but is skeptical that it will bear fruit, an aide said on Tuesday.

"He expects to go but questions the usefulness of the meeting," the aide said.
