Lines in the Sand

After days of playing "show me yours; no, show me yours," President Obama and congressional Republicans have each made opening offers and resoundingly rejected the other's. While some American voters know what kind of deal they'd like to see reached, others aren't sure what the fiscal cliff is. Obama is up, Congress is down, Americans are divided on same-sex marriage and more. — Joyce Jones and Britt Middleton
