House Republicans say they have sent the White House a new fiscal-cliff "counteroffer," but aren’t providing any details.
“We sent the White House a counteroffer that would achieve tax and entitlement reform to solve our looming debt crisis and create more American jobs,” said Michael Steel, a spokesman for Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio.
Referring to Boehner’s remarks on the House floor earlier on Tuesday, he added, “As the speaker said today, we’re still waiting for the White House to identify what spending cuts the president is willing to make as part of the ‘balanced approach’ he promised the American people.”
“The longer the White House slow-walks this process, the closer our economy gets to the fiscal cliff,” Steel said.
