Obama will have 25 holiday parties. How many fiscal cliff negotiations will he have with Congress?
While the country worries about whether the White House and Congressional leaders will agree to a budget deal to avoid the fiscal cliff, President Barack Obama has spent more time socializing this holiday season than negotiating with Republicans on Capitol Hill.
An administration official told the Washington Times that the White House is “hosting more than 25 holiday parties this month.” The White House said the Obamas were hosting parties for “volunteers, members of Congress, White House staff, Secret Service personnel, White House reporters and Americans from across the country.”
Nearly 14,000 people will attend a White House party or reception this holiday season.
