After meeting with President Obama this week, Speaker of the House John Boehner was asked about his conversation with the President in regards to the transportation bill. Boehner said, "We've got a funding mechanism to fund our infrastructure needs. The hunt has been underway for the last year and a half to find that funding source. I wish I could report to you that we've found it, but we haven't." When Boehner was pressed on the possibility of a general funds transfer to save the Highway Trust Fund, Boehner replied, "I just don't think members will accept that."
