    Speaker: Obama resists curbing federal spending | General Headlines | Comcast

    House Speaker John Boehner accused President Barack Obama of being so resistant to curbing federal spending that he risks an agreement to avoid the "fiscal cliff" of wide-ranging tax increases and spending cuts that will be automatically triggered in less than three weeks.

    "Unfortunately, the White House is so unserious about cutting spending that it appears willing to slow-walk any agreement and walk our economy right up to the fiscal cliff," Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters Thursday. "And doing that puts jobs in our country in danger."

    Boehner's comments underscored how his talks with Obama remain stalled over crafting a compromise deficit-cutting package of revenue increases and spending cuts. Without such an agreement, tax hikes and spending reductions will begin taking effect in early January, steps that economists warn could renew the recession.

    Obama the welfare President has destroyed and bankrupted our economy ...

    Obama doesn't want to cut spending. That would mean denying the golden spoon to many of his followers. Not gonna happen.

    Already instructed my congressman that he'll be unemployed in 2014 if he votes for an increase on anyone's taxes.

    The messiah has the media in his pocket and understands the political leverage he has by doing nothing. The perception that the ball is in Boehners corner is fostered by the false representation, by the media, that if Boehner will capitulate and tax the rich we will avoid the cliff. The key question and issue remains, without spending cuts how long will it take to venture through the threshold of insolvency, and if the country slips into another recession what will there be left to salvage? The preponderance of this administration to treat what remains of the middle class as leverage in realizing political advantage is disturbing.
    I hope I am wrong but regardless if Boehner agrees to raise taxes or not we are destined to slip into another recession and plunge off the cliff.
