WASHINGTON - Members of the Obama Administration will be on Capitol Hill tomorrow, meeting with lawmakers from both sides of the aisle.

They will discuss ways to avoid tax increases and spending cuts that take effect at the end of the year.

President Obama says he believes that a deal can be reached before Christmas.

The president was joined at the White House by about a dozen members of the middle-class who raised concerns about their taxes going up.
