Congress returns to face ‘fiscal cliff’ (audio)
One week after Election Day, members of Congress return to Washington Tuesday focused on an urgent need to avoid the so-called ‘fiscal cliff.’
The Congressional Budget Office has said failure to reach an agreement would push the economy back into recession and drive the nation’s unemployment rate to 9.1 percent next year.
North Carolina Congressman David Price says it’s time both sides compromise, agreeing to cut the deficit and raise revenue.
He acknowledges the public is tired of the constant gridlock in Washington:
“The American people have really repudiated the politics of shutdown and brinksmanship,” said Price in his recent appearance on News and Views.
