House Speaker John Boehner says he’s already made concessions in the fiscal cliff talks – and isn’t in any mood to make more.
“Listen, nobody wants to go over the cliff,” Boehner told said in an interview aired Sunday on “Fox News Sunday.} “That’s why, uh, the day after the election, I tried to speed this process up by making a concession to put revenues on the table.”
The Republcian congressman from Ohio then said that the White House should remember it must deal with GOP sentiment in the House if it hopes to reach a deal.
“They won the election,” Boehner said. “They must have forgotten that Republicans continue to hold a majority in the House…The president’s idea of a negotiation is roll over and do what I ask.”
