President Obama is offering a proposal to Senate GOP leaders that would prevent looming tax hikes and spending cuts, according to Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.).

Brown said in messages on Twitter and Facebook that he had “learned” of the proposal.

“Heading back to dc. Just learned that the Pres. reached out to Senate GOP leadership with a proposal,” Brown wrote on Facebook. “It is the first such proposal to be put forth. Eager to see why it is. How it is serious.”

Brown commented just over an hour after Air Force One touched down in Washington, bringing President Obama back to the Capitol and cutting his Hawaii vacation short.


Obama called congressional leaders about the “fiscal cliff” of tax hikes and spending cuts on his way back from Hawaii.
