Obama to Congress: work thru Christmas if needed

President Barack Obama said he and Congress should workthrough Congresss if necessary to reach agreement extending a payroll tax cut and jobless benefits past Dec. 31.

"We’re going to keep pushing Congress to make this happen,"he said.

"Now is not the time to slam the brakes on the recovery.  Right now, it’s time to step on the gas.  We need to get this done.  And I expect that it’s going to get done before Congress leaves.  Otherwise, Congress may not be leaving, and we can all spend Christmas here together."
