Obama cuts revenue demand to $1.4 trillion in 'fiscal cliff' talks

WASHINGTON, Dec 11 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama’s latest counteroffer to avert the year-end “fiscal cliff” includes new tax revenues of $1.4 trillion over 10 years, down from the $1.6 trillion he initially demanded, congressional aides said on Tuesday.

The $200 billion reduction was part of the White House’s latest offer to Republican House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, who also made a counteroffer to Obama on Tuesday. Further details of the two offers were not immediately available.
