Cliff Walk: Now the Three-Way Dance Begins

A group of conservative GOP lawmakers said Wednesday that it would oppose raising revenue in a deal to avert the fiscal cliff, despite President Barack Obama ’s pitch for $1.6 trillion in new tax revenue.

Though Democrats said they were largely pleased with president’s starting position, there could be trouble on the horizon. By Wednesday night, a group of at least 13 Senate Democrats were planning to send a letter to Obama asking him to push for a 1-to-1 ratio of revenue to spending cuts, among other things.
