Boehner: Obama Slow Walking Fiscal Cliff Talks

Running out the clock?


Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) accused the White House Friday of trying to "slow-walk" the fiscal cliff negotiations.

Boehner said there was "no progress" in the talks just three weeks before tax hikes and spending cuts kick in, and expressed frustration that President Obama hasn't made a counter-offer to the GOP's proposal of $800 billion in new tax revenue as part of a $2.2 trillion deficit reduction plan.
