Uh oh. Politico reports:
Speaker John Boehner on Thursday said that “no substantive progress has been made” on fiscal cliff negotiations, and warned that if Democrats don’t come up with a better compromise on entitlements and spending then “there’s a real danger of going off the fiscal cliff.”
Republicans are already indicating they are willing to give on revenues. I guess Democrats believe that compromise is simply getting your opponent to agree with you and you don’t have to give anything up in return.
