House Speaker John Boehner held his weekly briefing with reporters. He focused on the ongoing negotiations to avoid the impending “fiscal cliff” tax increases and budget cuts at the end of 2012 if Congress failed to reach a new budget agreement. He criticized President Obama’s latest proposal, saying it “fails to meet the test of balance.” The speaker’s “Plan B” legislation to avert the tax hikes and budget cuts was to be voted on by the House later in the day. close
