    WASHINGTON (AP) - Administration officials say President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner met at the White House Sunday, December 9, to discuss the impending "fiscal cliff."

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

    The White House and Congress are trying to find a deficit cutting deal to stop a combination of automatic tax increases and spending cuts scheduled to kick in at the beginning of the year.
