WASHINGTON

Administration officials say President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner met this afternoon at the White House to discuss the ongoing negotiations over the impeding “fiscal cliff.”

Spokesmen for both Obama and Boehner said the two men agreed to not release details of the conversation, but emphasized that the lines of communication remain open.

The meeting comes as the White House and Congress try to break an impasse over finding a way to stop a combination of automatic tax increases and spending cuts scheduled to kick in at the beginning of the year.
