Obama, Boehner Talk 'Fiscal Cliff' at White House

President Obama and Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, met on Sunday at the White House to discuss efforts to resolve the so-called "fiscal cliff," according to Boehner's spokesman.

"We're not reading out details of the conversation but the lines of communication remain open," Boehner spokesman Michael Steel said in a statement identical to one released by the White House.


This is the week that the House had initially scheduled to wrap up its lame-duck work and the 112th congressional session.

Instead, congressional Republicans and the White House have been at loggerheads over striking a deal that could delay or stop year-end automatic spending cuts and tax-rate hikes that many fear would harm the nation's already-fragile economic recovery.
