Speaker of the House Boehner took to the floor of the House this afternoon to update the country on the current state of the fiscal cliff negotiations:
We’re still waiting for the White House to identify what spending cuts the president is willing to make part of the balanced approach that he promised the American people. Where are the president’s spending cuts? The longer the White House slow walks this process, the closer our economy gets to the fiscal cliff. Here’s what we do know — the president wants more stimulus spending and an increase in the debt ceiling without any cuts or reform. That’s not fixing our problem; frankly, it’s making it worse.
