House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Thursday that there's been "no substantive progress" with the Obama administration in negotiations to avert going over the fiscal cliff.
Speaking at a press conference following a meeting with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and a Wednesday night call with President Barack Obama, Boehner said he's unconvinced that Democrats are committed to reeling in spending on federal entitlement programs.
"The White House has got to get serious," Boehner said. "We have no idea what the White House has been willing to do."
Boehner said he's disappointed at the tone and pace of negotiations and accused the White House of being more interested in campaigning than finding a solution to avoid the fiscal cliff.
