Reid, McConnell Say they had a “Good Meeting” with Obama on the “Fiscal Cliff”; “Hopeful” an Agreement can be Reached – Video 12/28/12

Here is video of Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on the Senate Floor this evening after meeting with President Obama at the White House this afternoon, where they both said they had a “good meeting” on the “Fiscal Cliff.” Both indicated they are “hopeful” a deal can be reached and passed before the January 1, 2013 deadline.

It’s interesting that the House of Representatives sent a bill extending the current tax rates to the Senate months ago, and have been saying the Democratic-controlled Senate and President Obama need to act on it. Now, just three days away from the “Cliff,” there is tacit admission by Obama and the Democrats that it is the Senate that must act – what the GOP has been saying all along.
