Boehner Tries To Negotiate In Public, Demanding Obama Show Spending Cuts, Which He Already Did
But the president already agreed to $1.6 trillion in cuts in last year’s Budget Control Act.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said on Tuesday that he was still waiting on the White House to detail what spending cuts President Obama would be willing to make in a potential deal to avert the so-called fiscal cliff at the end of the year.
“Where are the President’s spending cuts?” Boehner said in speech on the House floor.
Boehner and Obama met privately on Sunday at the White House on the same topic, to which the Speaker described as “cordial” and “a nice meeting.”
