The eleventh hour: President puts pressure on Senate to broker a fiscal cliff deal

OutFront tonight: the eleventh hour.

In a press conference today, the President put pressure squarely on the Senate to broker a deal on the edge of the fiscal cliff, showing visible frustration with the lack of action in Washington so far.

That followed a rare last-minute, face-to-face meeting that took place behind closed doors today between all the key players of the fiscal cliff drama. With just four days to go before we go over the fiscal cliff, the President, the Vice President, the Treasury Secretary, and all four Congressional leaders huddled together for an hour and five minutes.

CNN's Chief White House Correspondent Jessica Yellin is OutFront tonight with the latest information.
