President Obama and Speaker Boehner met in the Oval Office this evening to discuss the fiscal cliff.
According to Politico, the meeting was convened at the request of Obama, lasted 50 minutes, and was also attended by Treasury Secretary Geithner.
With little progress in the talks, Boehner had decided to return to Ohio for the weekend. It’s unclear whether the meeting will change his mind.
It’s the second face to face session between the two men in five days.
