It is my understanding that raising the debt ceiling is needed to cover money that was already approved and spent by congress.

As usual, Obama is ready to compromise with spending cuts and Boehner & his greedy rich friends refuse to raise taxes.

Do you have a link to that? From what I thought I was hearing, the Republicans absolutely wouldn't budge on tax increases of any kind.

--snip--

The Republicans made an offer: between $3 trillion and $3.5 trillion in spending
reductions, and nearly $800 billion in revenue increases over 10 years through
overhauling the tax code. Geithner and Daley took it back to the White
House.

Important points & tiimeline of negotiations, from the LA Times article (my bolding and italicized notes):

{Friday}The Republicans made an offer: between $3 trillion and $3.5 trillion in spending reductions, and nearly $800 billion in revenue increases over 10 years through overhauling the tax code. Geithner and Daley took it back to the White House. Obviously, overhauling the tax code will take some time;
