The President made his pitch at a toy factory on Friday as the fight over how to fix the fiscal cliff continues.
FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern has more from Hatfield, Pennsylvania:
On the floor of the K'NEX toy factory sure to produce plenty of holiday gifts, the President warned time is running out to avoid across-the-board tax hikes.
(Obama) "That's sort of like the lump of coal you get for Christmas. That's a scrooge Christmas."
President Obama urging Congress to pass a bill extending tax rates for 98% of Americans, while raising rates on the wealthiest Americans.
Republicans meeting the offer with reluctance, describing the President's so-called balanced plan as heavy on taxes, light on spending cuts.
