Timing A Concern For Fiscal Cliff Deal [VIDEO]
If there’s any progress in talks to avoid a fiscal cliff of automatic tax hikes and spending cuts, it’s happening behind closed doors, and now, timing is a concern as well.
FOX News Radio’s Rich Johnson reports from Washington:
We haven’t heard a thing since President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner’s Sunday meeting. And now, there are worries about timing as a bill must sit for nearly three days in the House before action and then head to the ‘anything goes’ United States Senate.
(Manley) “Under the rules of the Senate, any one Senator can almost ground the place to a halt and often times they do.”
That’s Jim Manley, a former aide to Senator Harry Reid.
Under the rules, the President and the Speaker need to cut a deal by later this week in order for both sides to pass the bill by late next week.
In Washington, Rich Johnson, FOX News Radio.
