Boehner says stalemate persists in "fiscal cliff" talks

WASHINGTON | Fri Dec 7, 2012 11:24am EST

(Reuters) - House Speaker John Boehner said on Friday that talks this week with President Barack Obama produced no progress, and he renewed his demand that the president provide a new offer to avert "the fiscal cliff."

At a Capitol Hill news conference, Boehner accused the president of "slow-walking the economy" toward a crush of automatic spending cuts and tax hikes at year-end.
