Boehner said he was open to discussing tax reform. “2013 should be the year we begin to solve our debt through tax reform and entitlement reform,” he said. “I'm proposing that we avert the fiscal cliff together in a manner that ensures that 2013 is finally the year that our government comes to grips with the major problems that are facing us. This will bring jobs home, result in a stronger, healthier economy. And a stronger, healthier economy means more Americans working and more revenues, which is what the President is seeking.”
