The jockeying is intensifying as Election Day approaches, despite a halt in talks between party leaders about how to avoid a total of $500 billion in annual tax increases and federal spending cuts set to begin in January, a double-whammy known as the fiscal cliff. Party leaders are waiting to see who holds more leverage after the elections (Paletta, 10/31).
