Obama seeks public opinion on fiscal cliff fix
The White House said Tuesday that the president intends to hold a series of events to build support for his approach to avoid across-the-board tax increases and steep spending cuts in defense and domestic programs.
Obama will meet with small business owners at the White House on Tuesday and with middle-class families on Wednesday. The president's visit to a small business in Pennsylvania that makes parts for a construction toy company will cap a week of public outreach as the White House and congressional leaders negotiate a way to avoid the tax increases and spending cuts scheduled to take effect January 1.
The trip will mark Obama's first public event outside the nation's capital since winning re-election.
