Reid: 'Fiscal cliff' deal by Christmas 'extremely difficult'
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) took on the role of the Grinch on Tuesday, expressing doubt that a deal on the "fiscal cliff" will be reached before Christmas. Reid, speaking to reporters, said it would be “extremely difficult” to finish a deal by Dec. 25, placing the onus on Republicans in the House and a tightening legislative schedule.
