Obama to make statement at 5:45 p.m., White House says

WASHINGTON, Dec 28 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama is scheduled to make a statement to the media at 5:45 p.m. ET, the White House said on Friday. The statement follows a meeting with congressional leaders on avoiding fiscal cliff tax increases and spending cuts.

The president and lawmakers are working ahead of a Jan. 1 deadline to come up with a compromise to prevent a fiscal shock that economists warn could slow fragile economic growth.
