President Obama and House Speaker John A. Boehner are scheduled to meet at the White House Thursday afternoon in hopes of reviving stalled talks over the year-end "fiscal cliff."

A White House official and senior Republican aides confirmed the meeting, which was set to begin around 5 p.m. It marks the second time Boehner (R-Ohio) has visited the White House this week. The first meeting came Sunday, when the two men appeared to make progress toward resolving a dispute over raising taxes on the wealthy.
