Notes about Fiscal Cliff latest (from FNC’s Jim Angle)

Fiscal Cliff

See below:


    Fox confirms that the Boehner counter offer came in response to an offer from the White House Monday.

    Sources, however, say the White House offer did not move much off the original Geithner offer, which was roundly condemned, dismissed or even ridiculed by Republicans.

     So movement, yes, but not much progress.

     Also keep in mind, as one Republican puts it, the President would gain about 70 billion next year by raising rates on the wealthy—about what the Administration favors for relief Hurricane Sandy.
