(Newser) – President Obama will address the nation at 9pm tonight, in the wake of dueling debt ceiling plans offered this afternoon by House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Boehner, whose proposal is coming under fire from conservatives, will give a short rebuttal afterward. All networks will carry both addresses, reports the AP.
