President Obama has had enough of Congress' decision-making on how to take action with the fiscal cliff, which he addressed in a speech give yesterday.
The President stated that if the two leaders of the Senate can't agree on a budget deal, then he will send in his own proposal for Congress to do an up-or-down vote.
He said in his address:
'The hour for immediate action is here - it is now,' Obama said in remarks from the White House briefing room following a meeting with congressional leaders.
'We're now at the point where in just four days, every American's tax rates are scheduled to go up by law. Every American's paycheck will get considerably smaller.'
Obama also stated that he is "modestly optimistic" a solution can be found before the December 31 fiscal cliff deadline.
He also stated:
"Given how things have been working in this town, we always have to wait and see until it actually happens."
In light of the issue standing, the President is set to appear on Meet The Press tomorrow for an interview with David Gregory.
This will be Obama's second appearance as President, and his 11th time on the show total.
