US House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on Wednesday he still has “serious differences” with President Barack Obama over how to resolve the year-end “fiscal cliff” as top Republicans vowed to stay in Washington until just before - and after - Christmas to reach a deal.

“I was born with a glass half full. I remain the most optimistic person in this town. But we've got some serious differences,” Boehner told reporters at a news conference. - Reuters
