VIDEO: Boehner Reacts to WH Meeting, Says 'Discussion About Revenue Is Over'

House Speaker John Boehner gave brief remarks to the press on Friday morning following a meeting on the looming sequestration cuts with President Obama and top lawmakers. His response was brief and to the point, with Boehner saying simply that the House "has laid out a way to avoid the sequester" and that he's hopeful the Senate will act. However, he added that the "discussion about revenue, in my view, is over" since the president "got his tax hikes" on January 1.

As for the March 27 government shutdown deadline, Boehner did say that he will be proposing legislation to keep the government funded through the end of the month. However, this doesn't mean it will be approved by the Senate or signed into law by the president.
