WASHINGTON, Dec 28 (Reuters) - U.S. Senate leaders are
aiming to craft "fiscal cliff" legislation by Sunday, the top
Republican Senator Mitch McConnell said on Friday, after a
discussion with President Barack Obama on how to avert the
looming tax hikes and spending cuts.
McConnell characterized the meeting with Obama and other
congressional leaders as "good" and said: "We are engaged in
discussions, the majority leader, and myself and the White
House, in the hopes that we can come forward as early as Sunday
and have a recommendation that I can make to my conference."
