WASHINGTON, July 22 (Reuters) - US House Speaker John Boehner slammed President Barack Obama's actions on the debt talks on Friday, saying on Fox News the president "doesn't want to do what needs to be done to solve our problems."

Boehner, a Republican, also faulted proposals from the bipartisan "Gang of Six" members of Congress: "On balance, there's too much spending. And I think there's too much revenue. We've got a spending problem here in Washington that needs to be addressed."

Asked about the overall deal to avoid defaulting on the US debt, Boehner said, "There is no plan."
