Representative John Larson (D-CT) talked about the latest developments in the negotiations to avoid the “fiscal cliff,” and congressional Democrats' stance on how spending on programs such as Social Security and Medicare should be addressed as part of any deal. He also responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.

Nancy Calo read news headlines from C-SPAN Radio at the end of the program.
