ABC News’ Ann Compton has reaction at the White House:
“The speaker and the president did talk again, by phone, the second time in four days but aides here insist the president is not budging on his insistence that income tax rates for those earning more than $250,000 a year must return to higher levels,” Compton said.
“Speaker Boehner is holding his public comment for a Capitol Hill news conference.”
