Boehner says stalemate persists in 'fiscal cliff' talks

WASHINGTON, Dec 7 (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker John Boehner said on Friday that talks this week with President Barack Obama produced no progress, and he renewed his demand that the president provide a new offer to avert “the fiscal cliff.”

At a Capitol Hill news conference, Boehner accused the president of “slow-walking the economy” toward a crush of automatic spending cuts and tax hikes at year-end.
