Hosted by

With that fiscal cliff looming just five days away, President Obama and members of the Senate are set to return to Washington today, as Democrats and Republicans remain in a stand-off about tax increases and spending cuts. Meanwhile, the Treasury Department has warned that the government will soon be unable to pay its bills unless Congress acts. Jonathan Weisman is Congressional reporter for the New York Times.
