Obama Visits Northern Virginia Family

  FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP) - President Barack Obama is visiting a middle-class family in suburban Washington as he continues to push for a plan to extend tax cuts to all but the top 2 percent of earners. 
 
     Obama, visiting the Northern Virginia home of Tiffany and Richard Santana, said every day that passes without a solution to the fiscal problem creates more stress and uncertainty for American families.
 
     The president called the problem solvable, but added: "The closer it gets to the brink the more stress there is going to be."
 
     Obama is trying to keep up pressure on Republicans to avoid a so-called fiscal cliff of automatic tax increases and across-the board spending cuts set for Jan. 1. Tiffany Santana said the tax increase would amount to two months' rent for her family.
