WASHINGTON (Indiana's NewsCenter) - President Barack Obama met with his chief rivals in the Republican Party at the White House Tuesday.

The tax-cut debate was one of the topics of conversation.

Meanwhile, the so-called 'lame duck' Congress has a lot of work to do.

Lawmakers face a number of legislative issues and some critical deadlines.

Issues that include the expiration of long-term unemployment benefits and the Bush Tax Cuts that ends on December 31st.

To avoid a government shutdown, lawmakers must pass some measure to keep the government funded.

With time off for Christmas, Congress has fewer than 30-days to act before Republicans take control.
