Senator Isakson puts faith in McConnell and Biden

As Congress gets ready to meet at 11AM for final discussions on avoiding the fiscal cliff, Senator Johnny Isakson from Georgia has faith in the players involved.

He says, “Any time you’re putting a deal together, it’s always the details that will kill you, and you have to get the details done. There’s a lot of back room operation going right now, making sure all the I’s get doted and T’ get crossed. I’m sure a final deal hasn’t been agreed to, but as long as Mitch McConnell and Joe Biden are talking- remember they’re the two that made it possible to get the last deal done. So, we’ve got our best two negotiators at the table.”
