Tim Geithner: 'Fiscal Cliff' Deal is 'Doable Within Several Weeks'
November 16, 2012
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said Friday that he believed a budget deal could be accomplished "within several weeks" and stated that the tone of a meeting with congressional leaders was "very good."
"You heard each of the leaders say coming out that it was a very constructive meeting," Geithner told Bloomberg TV. "You know, they said what you'd hope for them to say at this point, which is that this is something we can do, we're committed to do it, we want to do it as soon as we can, we know the stakes are very high."
