WASHINGTON--President Barack Obama--joined by people who will be socked by federal tax increases if Congress fails to retain tax breaks expiring at midnight--makes another appeal for lawmakers to make a deal in a just announced 1:30 p.m. ET event.

Obama will deliver remarks about the fiscal cliff in the South Court Auditorium on the White House campus. He will be joined by "middle class Americans."
