Obama and Boehner Discuss the Economy and Fiscal Cliff

Hosted by

Faced with the so-called fiscal cliff just three days after his re-election, President Obama today issued a challenge to the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. Since "the majority of Americans agree with my approach," he urged that "our job now is to set a majority in Congress to reflect the will of the American people." Earlier, House Speaker John Boehner told reporters there's already been some conversation and expressed hope that "productive conversations can begin soon so that we can forge an agreement that can pass the Congress." But that's not all Boehner had to say.  Paul Kane is Congressional Correspondent for the Washington Post.
