Appearing on Fox News Sunday, House Speaker John Boehner lashed out at President Obama over ongoing fiscal cliff talks that Boehner says have gone "nowhere." Boehner warned that there is "clearly a chance" that the two sides will not reach an agreement by year's end to prevent tax increases and spending cuts scheduled to hit Jan. 1. "The President's idea of negotiation is, roll over and do what I ask," Boehner said, citing Obama's proposed plan that includes $1.6 trillion in increased tax revenues. He suggested that Republicans have proposed raising about half that amount of revenue, through limiting or eliminating deductions for the wealthy.
