However, Boehner disputed those figures Tuesday.
"The White House offer yesterday was essentially $1.3 trillion in new revenues for only $850 billion in net spending reductions," he said. "That's not balanced in my opinion."
Obama's latest proposal included $130 billion in spending savings due to changes in the CPI.
However, Republican aides estimate that the CPI would increase tax revenues by an additional $95 billion over Obama's estimated $1.2 trillion, putting the total revenue figure of the president's latest proposal closer to $1.3 trillion.
The GOP aides also do not count Obama's estimated $290 billion in savings on national debt interest accumulation because they do not consider these savings real cuts. Therefore, the Republican aides said, Obama's plan fails to offer a 1-1 ratio of spending cuts and revenue that Boehner would consider balanced.
Carney took exception to the Republican math, telling reporters Tuesday that counting reduced interest on national debt was a legitimate savings counted in budget plans by both parties for years.
Obama and Boehner met face to face at the White House on Monday for 45 minutes, their third such meeting in eight days in a sign of an acceleration in the fiscal cliff negotiations. They also spoke by phone later Monday.
Boehner said he "made it clear to the president that I would put a trillion dollars worth of revenue on the table if he were willing to put a trillion dollars of spending reductions on the table."
Congress had been scheduled to end its work last week, but legislators returned to Washington on Monday and leaders warned members to be prepared to stay until Christmas and return after the holiday until year-end.
Last week, U.S. Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Maryland, said a deal would have to be reached by Christmas to allow time for the legislative process to approve the required measure or measures by the end of the year.
