Boehner's Bipartisan Fiscal Cliff Bluff - Live Webcast
Lots of reading between the lines and inference we are sure... standard political protocol surely means he will toe the line on TV... or will he?
“We won't solve the problem of our fiscal imbalance overnight, in the midst of a lame duck session of Congress,” Boehner said in prepared remarks. “And we certainly won't solve it by simply raising tax rates or taking a plunge off the fiscal cliff.
“What we can do,” Boehner continued, “is avert the cliff in a manner that serves as a down payment on – and a catalyst for – major solutions, enacted in 2013, that begin to solve the problem.”
