Beebe to discuss 'fiscal cliff' meeting with Obama

By The Associated Press

— Gov. Mike Beebe is to discuss his meeting with President Barack Obama about the prospect of looming tax increases and federal spending cuts.

Beebe met with the president Tuesday as part of a bipartisan delegation of governors concerned that the federal government may shift burdens to the states if "fiscal cliff" negotiations with Congress don’t bring a resolution.

House Republicans and the White House have been working to arrive at an agreement on tax revenue and reductions in spending on entitlements.

Beebe and other governors took Obama a message that they don’t want the states to have to pick up the tab for cuts in federal spending.

Beebe is to meet with reporters at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The Governors, all of them, mean well. But they need to get out there and push for economic growth in their own states. They have got to start thinking out of the federal box and try to build up their own states. Look at California now, they are building a high speed railway from LA to San Fran. that will open up numerous economic opportunties. The Governors need to get away from spending the majority of their time on Medicad and social issue agendas and instead recruit more companies and jobs so Medicad is not needed.
