Uneasy fix to ‘fiscal cliff’ in works
It won’t be easy, but Congress and the president will find a way to avoid having the nation’s economy go over the “fiscal cliff.”
In this Nov. 16, 2012, photo, President Obama acknowledges House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, while speaking to reporters in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, as he hosted a meeting of the bipartisan, bicameral leadership of Congress to discuss the deficit and economy. A big coalition of business groups says there must be give-and-take in the negotiations to avoid the "fiscal cliff" of massive tax increases and spending cuts. But the coalition also says raising tax rates is out of the question. The group doesn't care that Mr. Obama campaigned to raise tax rates on the rich. The same song is sung by groups representing retirees, colleges and countless others. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)
