POTUS Conducts Live Twitter Q&A About The “Fiscal Cliff”

President Obama took the Twitter yesterday to share his views on the impending “fiscal cliff,” as well as to conduct a live Q&A with fellow tweeters. The President, who led the online session from the Roosevelt Room in the White House, set out to “explain why Congress must act” and to “encourage people around the country to continue to add their voices to the debate,” according to the White House.


Some highlights include:
