House Speaker John Boehner acknowledges that some progress has been made in budget negotiations with the White House but he cautioned fellow Republicans that contentious issues remain before a final accord can be reached.
“Discussions are underway on legislation that will cut government spending more than it increases the debt limit, and advance the cause of the balanced budget amendment, without job-killing tax hikes,” the Ohio Republican said in an email to his colleagues this afternoon, Politico reported
. “Those talks are moving in the right direction, but serious issues remain. And no agreement will be final until members have a chance to weigh in. I would expect a conference call for members later this afternoon.”
Boehner’s message indicated that he would discuss the framework of a possible agreement during the conference call.
