A little less of Republicans negotiating on TV would give them a stronger hand. McConnell and Boehner seem to have lost control of the troops.

The update on the status of a fiscal cliff deal is that there really is no update but, Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama did meet over the weekend to at least talk about their differences in the matter.

Both the White House and Boehner’s office declined to describe the meeting, putting out identical statements that said, “This afternoon, the President and Speaker Boehner met at the White House to discuss efforts to resolve the fiscal cliff. We’re not reading out details of the conversation, but the lines of communication remain open.”
