ABSTRACT
The article focuses on efforts of U.S. President Barack Obama to reach out to House Majority Leader John Boehner and negotiate a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff, the spending cuts and tax hiked scheduled take effect unless Congress rescinds the law that created it. Although he told Reuters that Republicans have a mandate not to raise taxes, Boehner stated that he is willing to raise tax revenue. He notably wants more tax breaks for the rich by eliminating tax deductions for the middle class.
