News Summary: Fitch says Obama needs deficit deal
Wednesday - 11/7/2012, 3:37pm EST
(AP) - WARNING OBAMA: Fitch Ratings says President Barack Obama must pivot off his re-election victory and quickly forge an agreement with Congress to prevent a series of tax increases and spending cuts that kick in next year.
POSSIBLE DOWNGRADE: Fitch said the president must work toward a credible plan to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff or risk losing the U.S. government's top `AAA' rating next year.
NEGATIVE OUTLOOK: Fitch changed its outlook for the U.S. rating to negative last year after Congress and the Obama administration failed to produce a deficit-reduction plan.
