Fiscal Cliff Talks Get Fast Track

Congressional leaders said they have agreed to a fast-paced negotiation process to broker a deal to avert the "fiscal cliff," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"In an unusual display of bipartisanship, the four congressional leaders addressed reporters jointly after meeting with President Barack Obama. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said White House and congressional staff would work together next week to begin sorting through details, and suggested they could all reconvene in two weeks."
