President Barack Obama and House Republican Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) gesture while Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) look on during a meeting of bipartisan leaders of the House and Senate to d
They're still at it, apparently.
Despite all of House Speaker John Boehner's bluster on Tuesday, he's still at the table with Obama, and apparently made another offer, which might actually be essentially the same offer as last time: $800 billion in unspecified revenue.

The speaker's office isn't saying specifically what's in the offer, if there is anything specific in it this time around. Here are the questions they are refusing to answer.

The Huffington Post posed several questions to the speaker's office: Did you give the White House a menu of cuts you'd accept and ask them to pick from among those? Or are you still asking the White House to propose the cuts? What if the White House doesn't want any cuts beyond what it has proposed?

"We will not provide further information," Steel said.

There we are. Where that is, who knows. But it kind of makes a liar out of Boehner, again, since he just said hours before that the president was "slow-walking" the process and nothing was moving in the talks.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
