Boehner ‘flabbergasted’ at fiscal cliff proposal

(CNN) - House Speaker John Boehner painted a bleak picture Sunday when talking about fiscal cliff negotiations between the White House and Republicans.

"Right now I would say we're nowhere. Period. We're nowhere. We've put a serious offer on the table by putting revenues up there to try to get this question resolved, but the White House has responded with virtually nothing," Boehner said on "Fox News Sunday."

Everything's on the table - and the line - during fiscal cliff negotiations

(CNN) – Lawmakers from both the House and Senate said Sunday all options must be considered during fiscal cliff negotiations, as both parties work to try to avoid an economic crisis.

One of the biggest holdups so far during negotiations has been whether or not Republicans will accept tax increases, something President Barack Obama and Democratic Party leaders have been pushing for. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Michigan, said it's a position the GOP needs to give up.

Ryan: 'I'm not counting on a gaffe' from Biden

(CNN) – GOP vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan said Sunday he's not counting on gaffes from Vice President Joe Biden when they debate on October 11.

"I don't think he will. You know he doesn't do that in debates. The gaffes - he's kind of legendary for this - that's not in these kind of situations," Ryan said on "Fox News Sunday." "He's a very disciplined person when he speaks in these kinds of situations. He doesn't produce gaffes in these moments. Those are when he's off the cuff."

Cheney's daughter gives update on dad

Washington (CNN) – Former Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter gave an update on her father's condition Thursday, days after he returned home following heart transplant surgery.

"He's doing wonderfully. He's at home. He was out of the hospital after just 10 days, which is just tremendous, and when I talked to him yesterday, he walked outside to the end of the driveway to pick up the newspapers and walked back, and it was a big milestone. So he's doing very well," Liz Cheney said after an event at the American Enterprise Institute.
