Today the president is meeting with Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer.

She's part of a roundtable of business leaders discussing ways to avoid the year-end fiscal cliff. The president said today he hopes to have an agreement by Christmas. He's also urging the public to pressure Congress through social media.

The fiscal cliff refers to the $2,200 tax hike that could hit a family of four if middle class tax cuts aren't renewed.
