Sen. Mike Lee talks national debt, fiscal cliff compromise

According to a new CNN/ORC poll, 45% of respondents will blame Republicans if fiscal cliff talks fail, compared to 34% who will blame President Obama.

The poll also revealed that 70% of people think Republicans in Congress aren't doing enough to cooperate with the president.

Tea Party Caucus co-founder Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) believes that lawmakers aren't doing enough to reduce the national deficit, which he calls the "fiscal avalanche."

Sen. Lee discusses his concern about the national debt and weighs in on the possibility of a fiscal cliff compromise live from the Russell Rotunda on Starting Point today.
