Catholics United holds a press conference in front of the Capitol on Wednesday to rebut the GOP budget efforts in the ongoing fiscal cliff fight. The group says Republicans should side with the 98 percent of taxpayers who won’t be affected by “taxes on the rich.”
The deadline pressure could start forcing the sides to move together, but sources in both parties and chambers seemed resigned Wednesday to the notion that they will break for two days at most for the holiday and then return for the remainder of December.
Roll Call has launched a new feature, Hill Navigator, to advise congressional staffers and would-be staffers on how to manage workplace issues on Capitol Hill. Please send us your questions anything from office etiquette, to handling awkward moments, to what happens when the work life gets too personal. Submissions will be treated anonymously.
