Fiscal Cliff Talks Pick Up

Private talks between President Obama and top congressional leaders in search of a deal to avoid the year-end "fiscal cliff" are accelerating, the Washington Post reports.

Obama telephoned House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) over the weekend, "in a sign that high-level negotiations are advancing with only weeks to go before an automatic series of spending cuts and tax hikes starts to hit nearly every American."

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reports Obama "is ramping up the White House's postelection effort to generate public support for his preferred package of tax increases and spending cuts."
