Obama, Boehner to meet on ’fiscal cliff’

WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama will meet with House Speaker John Boehner (BAY’-nur) later Thursday at the White House amid negotiations on the “fiscal cliff.”

The meeting comes as Boehner has accused Obama of dragging out negotiations on any agreement to avoid a series of wide-ranging tax increases and spending cuts that could come in less than three weeks.

The two sides appear far apart on the issues, and Boehner is scheduled to return home to Ohio on Friday.
