Fiscal Cliff Talks Get Started
Fri, 16 Nov 2012 10:13:00 -0500
President Obama and congressional leaders from both major parties are meeting at the White House this hour for the first of what will likely be many negotiations aimed at averting a plunge over the so-called fiscal cliff.
We'll watch for news from the key players — who include House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio — and update with highlights.
Just before the meeting, this message was posted on Boehner's Twitter page:
"Look forward to mtg w/@WhiteHouse re: plan to avert #fiscalcliff via pro-growth tax reform & spending cuts; not tax rate hikes"
Update at 10:35 a.m. ET. "We're Going To Get To Work," Obama says:
Saying that "our challenge is to make sure that we are able to cooperate together, work together, find some common ground, make some tough compromise [and] build some consensus," President Obama just welcomed Boehner and other leaders to the White House.
"We're going to get to work," he added, before also wishing Boehner a day-early happy birthday.
