Obama believes not much further he can go in fiscal offers-White House
WASHINGTON Dec 20 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama has not necessarily given his final offer in "fiscal cliff" talks but there is not much farther he can go, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on Thursday.
Carney told reporters that Obama's most recent offer, made this week to Republicans in the House of Representatives, could be modified but not by much since "he's already gone more than halfway."
