Boehner Claims No Progress on Fiscal Cliff Talks

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said there had been "no substantive progress" in fiscal cliff negotiations in the two weeks since congressional leaders met with President Obama, The Hill reports.

Said Boehner: "Despite claims that the president supports a balanced approach, the Democrats have yet to get serious about real spending cuts. Secondly, no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the White House and the House in the last two weeks."

Mark Halperin: "The most important thing to remember about White House-Hill budget negotiations is that a deal among the leaders and the President won't necessarily have the votes to pass the House."
