House Speaker John Boehner reported no progress from what he called a “polite” though “very frank” meeting with President Barack Obama over the automatic spending cuts known as sequestration.
“I don’t think anyone quite understands how it gets resolved,” said Boehner, speaking on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press.”
Boehner, who met March 1 with Obama and other congressional leaders, blamed Democrats for the impasse over the “silly” cuts. He also said Republicans will hold firm in their demands for cuts in entitlement spending.
