Senate Republican leaders spoke to reporters following weekly party lunches about negotiations to avoid the “fiscal cliff,” impending tax increases and sequestration budget cuts at the end of 2012 if Congress failed to reach a new budget agreement. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said tax increases for the top two-percent would not resolve the “fiscal cliff” issue and would only run the government for less than a week. He also said Senate Democrats have ruled out any spending cuts, particularly dealing with entitlement programs. close
