WASHINGTON - White House senior adviser David Plouffe said on Monday that he believes the newly minted deal to raise the US debt ceiling will pass both houses of Congress and be signed into law by President Barack Obama.

Plouffe also appeared to clash with House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, who said on Sunday that the deal included no tax hikes.

"That's just not true," he told NBC's Today show. "If we're going to do additional deficit-reduction in the fall, it should be tax reform, closing loopholes for the wealthy and big corporations."
